It's the JP Morgan Chase. Serena won the title in 99 and 00, and was the runner up in 04.

Venus had to retire in the semis of 04.

No word on doubles. I think they should both try to play singles before we get ahead of ourselves :p

Even though Venus won't be at Stanford, I still may go to see her 17-year-old Czech clone, Nicole Vaidisova. ;)

Woohoo! Well this is good for me, since I go to this tournament. This will be the second time that both sisters played in Carson (last time was 2004).

Weird. But, I guess the ranking points are better.

They're not. Stanford and Carson are both $600,000 tier II tournaments. Carlsbad is the tier I.

i hope they play dubs together. i know i'm getting ahead of myself though ;) venus had some of her best singles results while playing doubles, and let's not forget she won wimbledon after playing mixed last year. it would help both of thier's games so much. venus has some sloppy volleys vs. Vaidisova.

Stanford is still on her schedule on her Website.

That's her 05' schedule.

IMO, Venus is gonna play Fed Cup
and doesn't want a repeat of last
year of having nothing left for the
finals of Stanford.

having that week off and picking up two other
tournaments I think will be just right for her.

True!

Venus was on the list for San Diego prior
to Serena asking for a WC. ;)
