I have a feeling that Serena will win her first tournament she enters this year. She will be ready this year.

Unfortunately, Serena has a well-deserved reputation for not honoring her tournament commitments. I hope she does play San Diego, but I'll believe it when I see it.

I so hope she will play. It is amazing to have Venus back I can't wait until Serena is back healthy and inform. Let's go girls.

Well, if everyone shows up who is entered this is gonna be one of the best draws at any tournament, Grand Slam or otherwise in YEARS. That's a big IF, however.

Wow this is good news to my ears. Now the hard part is waiting to see if she actually shows up and play. Good luck Serena!

She wouldn't request a wild card if she wasn't serious. Thank God that Venus is rounding into form and that Serena is coming back. I wonder if they are going to practice together for Venus' Wimbledon preparation or if Serena is going to stay Bollitieri's and just keep training there.

As of now she's still down there, and no offense to Venus (because I love her and want the best for her), but I think it's best for Serena to stay down in Florida until her (Serena's) first tourney comes around.

Are you saying that it is best for Venus to practice with Richard and a hitting partner b/c Serena isn't ready yet for Venus? Or are you saying that Venus wouldn't help Serena?

So true. :sad:

Now if only Mauresmo would play, the entire top 10 (and Venus) would be entered to play the Acura Classic. Ugh Amelie!

Impossible. The first tournament she entered this year was the Australian :)

I hope she does well though! Go Serena! (Frankly, I dont care how she does, just having her back ont he court is more than enough! Ive come to the point in my fanhood where the sisters have missed so much of the game, I just want them happy, healthy and playing when they can. Everything else is an added bonus because they have already established themselves as two of the greatest players to ever play the game).

Just because she is anxious to get back on tour, doesn't mean she'll be fit. I'm sure all players who are injured are anxious to start playing again.

And she committed to a few tournaments before the French, only to pull out and say she wouldn't be back until US Summer at the earliest.... i think thats a good reason for some people to be a bit hesitant.

i think the only reason she went to australia was because she was the defending champion, otherwise, she would've skipped it.

Its Serena Williams. Of course she will get a main draw wildcard (especially in her home country i should think).
