View Full Version : Should Venus or Serena play Eastbourne?

I say YES cos I will be there!!!

I think they should at least consider playing doubles to get some grasscourt match practice, and given their error-riddled French Open performances they should also consider singles to iron out problems heading into Wimbledon.

Just read this, so guess they won't :( :

"Their next tournament will be Wimbledon, starting June 21. Instead of entering a tuneup event on grass, Venus and Serena will train on hard courts back home."

With few exceptions, the sisters NEVER play a tournament the week before a Grand Slam. Having said that, I think they should go to London next weekend to start practicing on grass.

yes, they should head over to london early, to get as much practice on the grass as they can

Apart from the odditythat they need match practice more than anyone in the top 11 is this flying home a Williams thing or have the other US players also gone home? Seems a bit odd to pile on the jetlag when you could be acclimatising on grass somewhere.
