Exclamation Venus Williams Withdraws Fed Cup Against Belgium

http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news?...-us-nowilliams



I guess not a surprise ... who will replace her on the team w/ Mattek Sands, Huber and Oudin

I guess not Vania maybe Mary Joe give Lauren Davis a chance

this Fed Cup tie was supposed to be Venus & Serena v Kim & JuJu ... Venus and Serena already out ... JuJu may withdraw too with injury

Re: Venus Williams Withdraws Fed Cup Against Belgium

Venus will probably be back for Miami.

And Mary Joe already said it is Vania according to Harju.

Good decision.
With that injury, she has no business traveling and playing.
Get well soon


Now if only...

No...she'll already lose a ton of points for missing Dubai and Acapulco. She doesn't need to lose all her Miami finalist points as well.

Anyway no surprise. It looks like WS and Fed Cup just isn't meant to be.

Losing Dubai and Acapulco is like nothing. She'll be around 11-13 in the ranks. Losing the Miami along with that though will not be good.

Re: Venus Williams Withdraws Fed Cup Against Belgium

As long as she's healthy, her seeding doesn't matter. I just want her to be fresh and okay.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Venus Williams Withdraws Fed Cup Against Belgium

She needs to work on her fitness and lose few pounds, otherwise, she could suffer another injury
