Re: serena playing next year?

They believe she'll be banned from a slam due to her actions at the Open. I dunno if they're dumb enough to do that, but we'll see.

Re: serena playing next year?

The ITF tribunal will announce their decision in the coming weeks (I assume). But as someone else said, it's too late to SUSPEND her for any significant period of time. I'm just assuming that she'll get a heavy fine, but I don't think she'll get suspended. The statute of limitations has expired. Not to mention the fact that she's played 2 events since then.

Although the ITF only deals w/ the majors, she WAS on the FedCup roster (which is an ITF sanctioned event). And I feel like if she was going to be suspended at all, she wouldn't have been allowed to play that event.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?

Re: serena playing next year?

Has a player ranked no 1 or no 2, ever been banned before?

She will probably cover the fine with a portion of her $1.500.000 check from today.

I read that they might take it out of her bonus pool money.

I just hope Serena doesn't get banned. A fine it's okay I mean she can pay it, but honestly she makes tennis interesting, she's like the ringleader

Venus and Serena

Re: serena playing next year?

A suspension? Please. If it were some crass repeat offense, maybe. But the ITF would really burn A LOT of bridges this way.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

No way will Serena be banned from the 2010 AO. The worst thing they could do, or consider to do, would be to take away her ranking points for the YEC. I doubt, however, they will do anything really severe or stupid.

This is a lot of BS. Not saying she will be suspended, but those reasons have no bearing.

That being said, though, I do agree that allowing her to play gave the wrong message and if they were going to suspend her it should have been done right away. I can see that it would have been an extremely tough decision to suspend her for the Doubles Final at USO, but that was the right call if the incident calls for a suspension.
