View Full Version : Venus explains why the bandaged upper left thigh

Williams arrived at her first clay match of the season with a bandaged upper left thigh. She said it was due to a sore groin that she blamed on the "quick surface change" from hardcourt to clay.

"It was nice that today's match was quick, so I'll have a chance to recover from it," Williams said. "I just think it's from all the sliding."

One fan even jokingly called out, "C'mon, Venus, give her a game."

Williams probably didn't hear her, but in the sixth game she did give Sucha her only win of the match when she hit three consecutive backhands into the net.
