Can somebody please tell me when has Venus or Serena ever needed a warmup tournament to win a slam? Lets see.... Wimbledon 2000, wimbledon 2001, wimbledon 2002, AU OPEN 2003, Wimbledon 2003, hmmmmmmmm. Do they really need warmup tournaments? i mean what exactly will they learn from a warmup tournament? All they seem to need is practice and hitting with a coach or partner it seems. Well u cant argue with results.
