Question Venus: Only 4 Grand-Slams played in one year

Venus was a finalist in Madrid last year. Next week she will have only 4 Grand Slam tournaments on her account - no WTA-tournaments at all

Did that ever happen before??


Serena Williams is still Top 10 with a Wimbledon title, a quarter final in Roland Garros and 3rd round in Madrid to her account.

She will lose Madrid points next week and will be out of the rankings.



Will she ever be back?

Any news on Venus or Serena?

Re: Venus: Only 4 Grand-Slams played in one year

It's seriously hilarious that Serena is still #10 with 3 tournaments... .and apart from Wimbledon it's not like she did exceptionally well in her tournaments.

And Vee urgh... she'll be back for Brussels hopefuly.

Re: Venus: Only 4 Grand-Slams played in one year

I'm surprised that for a week or two serena dropped from the top ten, then gained it through the miracle workings of the points system and is still top ten for all these week

The Effing Venus Williams!!!

First of all, I checked TBE rankings, and she's not top ten, she's top twenty.
Besides that, I think people are too harsh on 'Generation Suck', Serena has a slam win + slam qfl + Premier semifinal points, that's how ranking system works and has nothing to do with the generation. When Henin retired first time she asked to delete her from the rankings, and if she hadn't asked for it, she could've been world number one till the end of summer (if I remember correctly), that is even more weird. Kim missed almost the whole season of 2004 playing only AO and a couple of Premier events (again if I remember correctly) and that was enough to end the season top 25. Maybe I'm missing smth (because I'm not the one who knows best how the rankings work), but I think there's not much in the situation for current players to be seriously ashamed of.

Re: Venus: Only 4 Grand-Slams played in one year

I really think the end is getting near for Venus...and I don't think Serena will be too far behind her.
I think that Venus only went to Germany with the Fed Cup team to keep her hopes of playing in the London Olympics alive, I doubt if she'll play past the 2012 US Open, if she even plays that long..she turns 31 next month. And I just don't see Serena playing too long without Venus gone from tour...they are both extraordinary players.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

Re: Venus: Only 4 Grand-Slams played in one year

I think it's funny that people moan about how the majors don't count for enough points, when we have players hanging around the top10 and top 20 who don't play anywhere else.

That said, these are very strange circumstances where career-threatening injuries have derailed things. I hope they both can get back on tour for the hardcourt season at least (to my knowledge, Venus and Serena have only been practicing on hardcourts, so I have to assume that that is what they are targeting).
