Is venus' company causing her to drop tournaments?

Venus has a new company to run. New businesses always take a lot of time and work and committment and venus seems to be a very hands on type of woman. Is this why she is dropping tournaments left and right?

If she loses the number two ranking you can bet on it that the powers that be will put her in her sisters half of the draw.

yeah, but also i think venus will try her hardest to keep the number 2 ranking, she can still add some tournies, and if she sees that it is in jeapordy, she will add a couple, but really i don't think she minds about meeting serena on any side of the draw, and w/ the gap the way it is, do you see how bad it would be if they were on the same side of the draw, it wouldn't mean kim has gotten better, it would be venus just droppe those tournies and kim got to number 2. and then we would have either venus or serena in the finals, and the match would not be spectauclar at all, seeing the sisters own the tour except for eachother, they would win easily if they came out on fire!

I also believe that if Venus's #2 ranking is somehow seriously threatened by Kim, she will add new tournaments (preferably TierI ... there are so many that Venus didn't play last year!)

Well I think somethings up with Vee. Who knows though? I think maybe she is into her business, and not even concerned with where she is ranked. However, I have never seen Vee play this less. I know she usually pulls out of one or two tournaments a year, but at this rate I don't know what to expect.

As long as Venus is happy and playing the slams, I'm happy for her (and me).

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

Last year she playe da lot. In 2001 she played AO, Nice (2001's Antwerp) then miami, Hamburg, GO, FO, WIMBy, her 3 summer tournies, then the USO.

She is probably gonna play Miami, then Warsaw, IO, FO, WImby, Her 3 summer tournies, US O, Moscow, and Swisscom, then the champs. She does better when she plays less. I am not worried. Kim can add point yes, but Venus usually keep her points the same, adding 4 tournies last hear she only added like 700 points, that wasn't huge. Venus knows Rena is gonna be more tired by the FOand definitly by US O, then she will capitalize.
