"It's a new injury that came last night," Williams told reporters. "I'm not fit enough to play a tennis match. It's a pity I can't play but I hope I can play in Guangzhou. Maybe now I can see the Forbidden City."

Maybe it was from post-practice stretching? Damn, this is a shame. It's odd to me that she is sitting this one out, but mentions maybe being ready for a tourny that is next week. I guess it is just a publicity thing, to promote the other tourny, cause what injury fully heals in a week?

Venus pulls out of China Open with knee injury

BEIJING (Reuters) - Wimbledon champion Venus Williams pulled out of the China Open with a left knee injury on Friday, dealing a new blow to tournament organizers.

"It's a new injury that came last night," Williams told reporters. "I'm not fit enough to play a tennis match. It's a pity I can't play but I hope I can play in Guangzhou. Maybe now I can see the Forbidden City."

Williams's withdrawal has left the $585,000 tournament without three of its top four seeds.

Lindsay Davenport pulled out after winning in Bali at the weekend and Venus's younger sister Serena suffered a shock 6-2, 7-6 defeat by China's Sun Tiantian in her opening match.

Only world number one Maria Sharapova is left in.

Third seed Venus took a knee-injury timeout late in her 6-3, 6-1 win over Spain's Nuria Llagostera Vives on Thursday but had shown no ill effects in finishing off the second round match.

The former world number one has been troubled by knee and various other injuries throughout her career.

Venus, who was due to play Poland's Marta Domachowska in a quarter-final on Friday, is scheduled to appear in Guangzhou, southern China, next week.

That's exactly what I think
she's doing. :yeah:

If she's ready by Guangzhou, great.
If not, can just take the extra week's rest
for Filderstadt.

Venus will work it out. :cool:

Simply a release of nervous tension

competition is gone.

Didn't want a Seoul repeat
I gather. ;)

Oh damn my fears have been realized!!! I think she is going to the next tournie in order to try and fullfill her obligations and see the city of course, her main reason for even playing there. She might attempt to play if her knee improves but I doubt she will complete that tournie either. Anyway, I hope after she leaves China she takes the time off to heal and be healthy for YEC at least. Love you Vee!!!

:( Disappointing for Venus, but I kind of expected it after seeing the pictures from yeasterday's match of her getting treatment on court.

Hopefully she'll be fit for Ghangzhou.

This kinda makes me wonder about what goes on behind closed doors.
Serena's improbable first round loss.
Vee's sudden injury.
Hmm..? Did that fool xan drug Serena's water, and then pay a thug to take out Vee? Has xan become a mindless killer-stalker?
Well, maybe not a killer-stalker. :tape: :lol:

You just don't read the threads do you?

If you actually look at the threads before posting crap, you and denise will see that I posted in response to a post claiming that Venus would have been certain to beat Masha.

I won't hold my breath waiting for your apology. :rolleyes:

Please don't hold your breath waiting for an apology, because you might die. Excuse me, but this is a Williams' thread and don't the fans have a right to be optimistic? There's also no guarantee that Maria would get to the final. Anything could happen. Next, you'll be posting in the Williams' forums when we talk about our favs beating Maria. :rolleyes:

Get some help and the sooner the better. :tape:
