Venus and Pilot Pen.......

I think the reason why Venus will not be playig Pilot Pen is two things. 1 She might be tired of winning the same tournie, she is ready for a change and also in 2004, she plans on trying to play in the Olympics, and they are the same week of Pilot Pen I believe, so If she played this year, she would not get the chance to play in 2004 (and possibly defend) so she will not only loose points, but not even have the opportunity to play b/c she will be in Greece.

What do you all think? I didn't realize this till now, but I really think that is why Venus is not going to commit to New Haven.

No, she was shocked by Serena's dominance of the 2002 US open despite virtually skipping the hard court season in the summer. I think she figures she wants to go in fresher this year.

How could someone get tired of winning a tourney? That makes no sense, but you almost never do.

Well there was no way she could be fresh last year, isn't that the year she had to play all those matches in a row, and she was fighting a cold?

She practically owns the tourney, much like Graf in her days.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
