Did Lindsay pull out of the Open???

Will she?? I don't think she can have too many more cortizone shots in her toe before having surgery. Has she withdrawn??

From what I've heard, Lindsay can have one more cortizone shot; perhaps she was saving it for the Open. I believe she will try to play; but whether she can make it to the 2nd week is another story...

isnt she gonna wreck het foot with all those shots

i hope she'll be ok

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

I think she said she can only have 3 shots in one spot...so this would be her third, then? I dunno either.

This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.
My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
And sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine;
But other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
O hear my song, thou God of all the nations,
A song of peace for their land and for mine.

She hurt her foot today. I heard her talk about her running out of cortizone shots in her foot until she had to have surgery, but I couldn't remember how many she had left. I want her to play though. I wnat to see a Kim/Lindsay semifinal. I want to see how Kim will react to playing Davy at a GS semifinal. She may be beating Davy at the non-GS tournaments, but the highest ranked player Kim has ever beaten is #7 Henin at AO 2002. It will be interesting to see if Lindsay's GS champion experience can counter Kim's talent and movement. LD was playing very well at New Haven though. It is just an interesting scenario.

Nah, I'm pretty sure she won't pull outta the Open. I'm pretty sure that she won't win it either, though. She has the game, but not only is her toe hurting, it's prevented her from getting into serious Slam shape that she needs to be in in order to win it. Just like with Venus - her injury is fine. She's just not in any match shape to play a Slam.

Expect JHH or JenCap to come away with the honors. Kimmie has the game, but I don't think she has the "head" to combat the pressures of this New York crowd who demands the best outta their players - no exceptions. JHH & JENCAP are both cantankerous enough to handle the crowd.

She says she's going to give it a go. She can have one more cortisone shot before surgery. It might give her enough relief to play for two weeks or it might not.

This is the first I had heard that Venus is healed enough to play but is not playing simply because she can't play well enough to avoid being defeated. I was rather surprised that one of her fans posted that.

That's ACTUALLY what I said.

Same thing. She is able to play, but can't play well enough to win.

And even more the same thing when you put the rest of the quote with it.

It's not the same thing @ all. If you haven't been able to pick up a racket or workout in 2 months because you're rehabilitating, then it would be crazy to risk reinjuring yourself when you're not in any shape to play. It makes common sense to me.

It's not surprising that a non-Williams fan is trying to put words in my mouth. . .. LOL

No need to put words in your mouth.

You've interpreted this wrong, then. Anyway, you've never been a Venus Williams fan, and you probably won't ever be one. I'm satisfied with you thinking what you want to think about this situation. I doubt if it is any worse than what you have in mind already.
