Venus' last 4 tournaments have been the 4 grand slams consecutively. Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open.

apart from exhibitions that's correct info isn't it

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Re: ES commentators: Venus did not play a match since US Open...

She played high quality players in Hong Kong, no? Even though it is not WTA, but what really is difference? She's got match practice in and if she chose not to play any warm-up tournaments, really could not be used as an excuse for sub par play

Wow, I knew she didn't play much last year, but I didn't know that the last WTA tournament she played was Madrid. I assumed she played one the US Open series tournaments.

An exhibition isn't remotely close to a major, just like a tour final isn't a slam final.

a match is match and as for the pressure - it's what a player makes of it

They are right? She hasn't played a TOUR match since the US Open
