I hope Venus plays Eastbourne

Can she still get a wildcard?

She needs to kick her year into gear before Wimbledon.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

If Venus plays Eastboure, I will do a naked cartwheel..........

It won't happen. I think it's her birthday this week, and she says she rather not play on her birthday because she once lost a match on her birthday and she didn't like it.

Venus does not celebrate her birthday because she's a Jehovah's Witness nor does she celebrate any other holidays.

I think she does not want to play these event the same reason she won't play Sydney. She doesnt want to get injured before a Grand Slam and she does have a valid point after today. I'm sure the pulled muscle from Wasaw had soemthing to do with her loss even is Venus is too classy to admit it.

I kind of wonder about the disappearing act Venus has pulled this year. Did she get injured after Antwerp? Was she injured in Miami as well? Is she having some physical problem that prevents her from practicing?

Lots of questions about what is going on with her, but I don't think we will be getting many answers.

venus pulled her stomach muscle during the ameile final match in warsaw and did not play again until this tournament in paris.

no injury i know of at the lipton. she played poorly and megahan won. megan won over venus before on hard courts in july 1999? in the third set.

I highly doubt it, it's been a while since she played there and she has not been back recently. I just hope she rests up and feels better.

However if she wants Wimbledon she's gonna have to really work hard cause you know her and Serena will be on the same side of the draw.

She plays New Haven right before Usopen...she needs to add Eastbourne in my opinion.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

I would like to see Venus at Eastborne, it would meen we would get more tv coverage. Since Davenport in 2001 we have had no big named played (like top 3) down south, so I think it would be nice.
