Who says the Williams sisters haven't played tournaments??

Well, Venus anyway. Since 1997 here is her # of tournaments.

1997: 13
1998: 16
1999: 18
2000: 10 (missed first four months with tendonitis in both wrists)
2001: 11 (shortened schedule because of 9/11 and injured wrist)
2002: 16(withdrew from fall tourneys citing fatigue)

So when Venus is healthy she plays a very good amount of tournies. Serena on the other hand, has never played more than the 13 she played last year, but withdrew from 3 fall tournies citing fatigue. So the WS don't play enough only applies to a healthy Serena.

in 2001 Venus played 12 tournaments

Serena for the first time has played more tournaments than Venus in the past 52 weeks.

They are smart not to overdo it as long as they win slams. You can't argue with success

Venus was 32-14 in1997 matches-so that's 14 events that year. I'd bet she lost once in qualies, which is why it doesn't show up on tenniscorner.

They play less tournament than anyone on the tour. Venus played only 10 tournaments in the last 52 weeks.

VENUS WILLIAMS
SERENA WILLIAMS

This is because of injury in Venus' case.

This is the first serious injury in two years (actually since 2000) that has kept Venus out for long periods of time. She played her azz off last year.
For Serena to the first since 2001.

Another case of Venus getting tagged w/Serena's baggage?

"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. "

Venus and Serena both play, on average, about one tournament per month, or about 5 matches in one month, and since three or four of those matches are under an hour easy wins, they play about one or two matches each month where they will actually get slightly tired. There is no reason they can't play more and this proves how full of shit Serena was when she made excuses for her loss to Clijsters.

Uhum, it´s Serena who plays less in general than Venus and that´s why Venus´ranking was always stable....but for all the much that Venus has played her career winning isn´t that impressive compared to Serena.

Just like how full of shyt Martina was claiming retirement when her doctor clearly said she was more than capable of playing?

2002 year ending top 10 most matches played:

Hantuchova 57-26= 83 matches.
Dokic 53-26= 79 matches
Henin 52-21= 73 matches
Venus 62-9= 71 matches
Clijsters 51-17= 68 matches
Caprati 48-16= 64 matches
Mauresmo 48-15= 63 matches
Seles 49-14= 63 matches
Serena 56-5= 61 matches
Hingis 34-10(due to injury)

So Venus played fourth most matches of the top ten, and won the most matches. Serena was ninth of mathces played, but not far behind Clijsters, Capriati, Mauresmo and Seles. She also won the 3rd most matches, one behind Hantuchova.

Posters like TylerDurden better known as 5zeros are so blinded by their dislike/hatred for the Williames so they never bother to check the facts before spewing shit.
