Venus seriously should plan a smart schedule to ensure a seed at the AO, she's gone an entire year without being seeded at a slam!

After winning the USO Serena confirmed she's playing. Plus she's qualified for YEC unlike last year.

I think Serena wants that number 1 ranking.

Well, obviously I don't know that but if I were her I'd be wanting to take Beijing and Istanbul, finish the year number 1 and show the tour who's boss

So Serena yeah, and Venus too I think.

I'd say both are playing. Serena stated that Sunday (implying the China Open and the YEC). She also indicated some time back that she and Venus want to play doubles there. Serena will be well rested and eager to gain more points along with the YEC. She may not get the #1 ranking, but she can get close. By the end of the Aussie Open, she should be back there for through Wimbledon.

Venus should in the attempt of getting a seed for the Aussie. I mean I would be beyond pissed if she goes to Charleston this weekend, but skips Beijing and Luxembourg.

No matter how many times you say that Beijing is the 5th slam... it never will be.
