Re: Venus OUT of Paris Indoor (Mauresmo Open) ... Petra Given MDWC, Fran Given QWC

Withdrawal? Of course....

Per Venus tweet: Join me at @sportschalet Sunday in West LA at 12-1pm for an autograph signing & to see @EleVenbyVenus Spring 2013 line http://t.co/yCIZL9fs
- Venus Williams.

There was no way Venus was going to be in Paree on the 28th, while appearing in L.A. on the 27th with lst round matches starting on the 28th. A direct flight from L.A. to Paree is 10 hours, jet lag acute. Wasn't happening. So, the withdrawal was all but academic.

their final in 09 was the worst case of hometown line calls i've ever seen! to say Elena was robbed is putting it mildly.

Kuznetsova forced to play qualifying in Sydney and it worked well for her. She hasn't won a match since the French Open. Maybe Schiavone will do the same

Well, I actually thought Venus had some sort of injury she was keeping silent about, so...I'm not surprised. Don't know if Franny can get very far into the tournament if she also has to qualify.

Is Schiavone's ranking seriously dropped that low she needed a wildcard?

Resident fan of the ever slumping Karolina Wozniacki.

Re: Venus OUT of Paris Indoor (Mauresmo Open) ... Petra Given MDWC, Fran Given QWC

^She's ranked in the forties, so I think she applied to play too late and there wasn't another MDWC available. Something similar happened to ... Larsson last year, I think.

Kvitty should be the real 1st seed, good chance for her to find some confidence back!

Just hope she won't tank this one too
