Venus Williams Set For A May Return At Brussels
By Tripp Mateschitz, Lawn Tennis Analyst, Posted: Tuesday, April 5, 2011 11:49am PST USA
BRUSSELS-- Sidelined since January due to injury, the former WTA Tour world number one Venus Williams of the USA, is set to rejoin the WTA Tour May 14th in Brussels, Belgium.
Williams, who this week saw her WTA Tour singles rankings fall from 15 to 9, has competed in only six WTA Tour tournaments in the past 52 weeks: the four grand slams plus clay court tournaments last May in Rome and Madrid.

The WTA Tour lists Williams’ total number of tournaments as 14 due to 8 mandatory tournaments which Williams missed, but was awarded zero total points for each

Re: Venus Williams Set For A May Return At Brussels

That's really late seems strange to skip the mandatory in Madrid just two weeks before where she made the final last year. It will be good to have you back though Vee .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Incredibly, that will make Brussels Venus Williams' 1st WTA event (The Grand Slams being ITF events) in more than a year.

Re: Venus Williams Set For A May Return At Brussels

The article doesn't say whether she'll play in Madrid or Rome so maybe it's still possible that she will play there. Regardless, it's good to see she's entered Brussels to get some match practice.

Venus will be ranked in the 20s during Roland Garros. Nothing to lose.

She will definitely be a dangerous floater in the RG draw.

Re: Venus Williams Set For A May Return At Brussels

Vee has decided to not defend her Madrid final... she'll now slide down to the 25-30s... I wonder if she'll now win RG ranked so as she has never been abled to do it with better rankings... suspense.

The only time she has attempted to win the FO while being ranked beyond the top 20 (27 to be exact) she lost in the 3rd round in 2007... will history strike twice...

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.
