Is Venus really injured?
Forgive me, but I find it really suspicious this time. Just hours before her interview. she gave an interview to BBC, which was posted somewhere in this forum and in which she says that she isn't 100% but will play. And, her agents were giving all the signal that she will play. So, what changed? I don't know. May be she took a page out of Martina Hingis' strategy book, analysed all the competition, reached a conclusion that her chance of winning are not that great with the Belgians and others in great form, and decided to give USO a pass. I don't think she is 100% yet, but I have a feeling she could have played.
Okay, that is my opinion.
