Serena aiming for Roland Garros return

We are waiting for you Serena

Maybe she'll play a warmup to avoid being unranked

http://tennis.com/articles/templates...0797&zoneid=25

Serena Williams, who hasn’t competed since winning Wimbledon because of a foot injury, says she’s aiming to return to the tour in mid-May. Williams, who had her walking boot taken off sometime in the past few weeks, hopes to be back on the practice court soon. "My foot feels good and I'm starting to train right away, and I intend to be back for the French Open," Williams told the New York Post.

Re: Serena aiming for Roland Garros return

Okay, I remember hearing this somewhere, maybe Mary Joe Fernandez said it. Basically, in order to play in the Olympics, you have to play at least two Fed Cup ties in between. And both Venus and Serena have played one. Now, if Serena is to come back mid-May, she would miss the next tie. And Fernandez acted like this would void her from the Olympics, and she couldn't play the first tie in 2012. I think I saw it on some interview on Tennis Channel, but can someone elaborate/confirm this for me?

Re: Serena aiming for Roland Garros return

The French Open is basically a warm up for Wimbledon for her this year (if she plays the French). If she gets in 3, 4, or even 5 matches that would be good for her.

Isn't there a new rule if you earn over a certain amount of points in one tournament you get a ranking anyway?

Will be great to have her back anyway

Ooh you are right, they got rid of the three tournament rule. I didn't know.

Number of Tournaments
Players must earn (i) ranking points in at least three (3) valid
Tournaments, or (ii) a minimum of 10 singles ranking points or 10
doubles ranking points in one (1) or more valid Tournaments, in
order to appear on the WTA Rankings.

yep, you can now have a ranking with 1 or 2 tournaments played as long as that 1 or 2 tournaments points total is over 10. so serena will have a ranking till the week after wimbledon, should she not play.

Yes there is. I can't remember what the "certain amount of points in one tournament" is but suffice to say it is less than the 2000 Serena got last year at Wimbledon.
