Serena may pull out of Acura Classic!

Just saw this on sports.yahoo.com:

Williams, the top draw for the $1 million event, may be on the verge of pulling out of the tournament. Williams canceled an afternoon interview session because she was being examined by a Los Angeles-area doctor for tendinitis in her left knee, according to the WTA Tour.

Williams cited the same injury when she withdrew from last week's Bank of the West Classic.

Hope Serena plays!!

Since she has a few days to rest - hopefully she will play!
Jennifer was also suppose to be examined, (her shoulder), but she thinks she will be fine for the event.

Please Serena!!! Let there be at least a fight for the number 1 spot (although: easier semi for Justine ) . But if she can't, she can't. She can't break her leg just to maintain her number 1 position.

I hope she plays ... Or at least tries to play if it is not that bad ...

Rena, don't force it girl (esp. because tournament owner and not-even-has-been 70's player Raquel Giscarfe (sp)? is a total bitch. Manhattan Beach will be lovely next week...

With that cakewalk draw Kim has (again), she should be shot if she doesn't make it to the final.

Serena Kim definately deserves no. 1. Serena may be the more talented player, but Kim does her job. Kim shows up to support tournaments week after week. Kim prooves that she is a great player week after week. Kim manages to get through to the finals and win titles almost every single tournament. Serena does it just 11 or 12 times a year. Sorry, but that is way too limited of a schedule. While 20+ is also quite ridiculous, this is her job, like it or not, and she needs to show up to AT LEAST 15 tournaments a year IMHO if she really wants to have that number one.

I just checked the Yahoo Sports site, and I didn't see anything on Serena possibly pulling out. I think we're being bamboozled, boys and girls.....

Went to http://sports.yahoo.com/ten and sports.yahoo.com, couldn't find the article!

DannerCal, could you please post the article?

I'm not Dannercal, but here is an article about it. Serena ain't showing up...I'd bet money on it:

Tennis-Serena set for scan on injured knee


CARLSBAD, California, July 28 (Reuters) - World number one Serena Williams is due to have an MRI scan on her injured left knee in Los Angeles later on Monday, her father and coach Richard has told the WTA Tour.

The Wimbledon champion is the top seed at this week's Acura Classic and failed to appear on Monday morning for a scheduled press conference here.

She pulled out of last week's Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, California because of pain in her left knee.

Williams, who has a first-round bye, is scheduled to play Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova in the second round, probably on Wednesday.

American Alexandra Stevenson pulled out of the Acura Classic on Monday because of a shoulder injury.

I really want Serena to play. But I don't want her to make the injury worse. If she does in fact withdraw, it's understood. Get well soon Serena.
