Yep I think there is a chance that she might enter, cause if she withdraws from Montreal, which is surely going to happen I think, and then she feels better and she wants some matchplay, than I think she could enter this tournament.

Very little.

Venus doesn't usually like playing
the week before a Slam.

She's only done it once in the
past four years.

Yet, if she wanted to they'd welcome her
with open arms. She is a 4-time Champion
there. 99'-02'. Perfect 16-0 record at this event.

I can't even recall the last time Venus took a last minute wildcard I'd be happy if she played though!


Looking at those stats

Flawless 16 wins and only one lost set

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

She should. In all the years she played New Haven ('99-'02) she has gotten to the SF or better at the USO. A good sign indeed.

I hope she plays. I mean really hope. But only if she is healthy enough. I don't want an injured Venus to play the Open. I love the U.S. Open and have had great memories watching the Williams Sisters matches (esp. at night).

Venus, rest and get healthy!
