When will one or both withdraw?

the day before the tourney begins
2 days before it begins
3 days before it begins
a week before it begins (which is fine, but highly unlikely)

:p

Now paint me red :kiss:
Though if they do show up, I'd root for them.

Davenport Commits To Carson

Two days after Lindsay Davenport departed the Acura Classic draw, JPMorgan Chase Open officials announced the 10th-ranked American will launch her return to the WTA Tour in Carson, California at the Home Depot Center next week.



The four-time JPMorgan Chase Open champion has been sidelined with a bulging disc in her back that has prevented her from playing a match since she lost to Martina Hingis, 6-3, 1-6, 6-2, at Indian Wells in March.

The Laguna Beach resident has had a history of success at the JPMorgan Chase Open, advancing to the final in eight of the past 10 years. Davenport defeated Serena Williams, 6-1, 6-3, to win the 2004 Carson championship after reigning as champion in 2001, 1998 and 1996.

"We are happy to see Lindsay returning to the tour and thrilled that she chose the JPMorgan Chase Open to start her comeback on the way to the U.S. Open and her defense of her 2005 Grand Slam Championship," said tournament director Bill Peterson. "She has always been a fan favorite here and her presence clearly makes our draw among the best ever in the 37-year history of this event."

Davenport, who finished the 2005 season as the world's top-ranked player marking the fourth time she earned the year-end top spot, has an 8-3 record this year and a career 703-183 record, a .793 winning percentage.

I just deleted the other (double) thread. That was strange. Anyways, if anyone's interested. Here's the current list and bios of the big name players entered (currently) by the way.

I am sure that Serena will play here. I think Venus will not play here, cause she made her left wrist injury I think worse because of WTT matches.

Oh yeah, the tournament starts next week. So if one of them was to withdraw, they'd have to inform the tourney officials today is they are to give ample time notice (option 4 on the list). Hopefully neither will though.

I'm pretty sure that they both will play this event because I'm sure they both want to get their ranking up before the USO and all the other events in the USO series they usually dont go to but if I was Serena I would play New Haven for sure because it looks like shes gonna need that wildcard and getting some good matches in right before the USO will help her if she runs into a top 10 player in the first few rounds she prolly wont do it but she should

I'd be VERY SURPRISED if either of them show up. I'd be rooting for them, no doubt. But given their track record of honoring commitments, it's pretty unlikely that they will show. It's actually gotten to the point where, if they do show up, it's an anomaly. And as a fan, it's incredibly frustrating. Injuries, I believe, are only "part" of the blame.

Well since you don't care to see them play anyway, why make an issue of it?.

Who said that :confused:. Now you're just making assumptions. But you are partly right. I won't lose any sleep out of them not showing up anymore. I gave up on being eager to watch them play a long time ago. This came after many withdraws, not committing to tour events (which is actually better than withdrawing), and them showing much disinterest in the tour as a whole, especially when compared to other activities. And just like Contemplate said. It's SURPRISING when they show up. Almost an anomaly. But when ever they show, I'd be rooting for them. The sisters got me into watching tennis, and I love their aggressive power game. I've just fallen off as a fan due to many disappointments.

You have to treat Zippy the way he treats both sisters, without much regard.

So they go you into tennis, but you should get interested in the game itself not focus so much on the personalities. Venus and Serena are not the only ones playing. It can be frustrating when we want somone to be have in the way we want them to and they don't. Not many of us get up everyday and are anxious to go to our jobs especailly if we have been doing the same routine for 15-20 years. In fact a lot of us goof off at work or shcool. We call in sick many times when we are not sick. We take off personal days. We skip school just to hang out with our friends. We lie about our vacaton time, many of us have grandmothers, grandfathers, uncles and aunts who have died a thousand times so that we can get bereavement time off. Lots of dogs or cats have eaten our home work. We come in late for work or school and blame it on family mishap, or traffic jams when we spent the night out partying and was just too tired or hangover to get up on time. What we fail to realize is that... tennis is a job. It may be an enjoyable form of entertainment for us voyeurs but to the tennis players it is hard work. So maybe they take time off the slightest hurt. Sometimes the thought of running full out back and forth, up and down on the court with an aching wrist, knee or back is simply too much for them to take, so they quit tennis for that tournament to give their bodies and minds a break. Enjoy them while they play and if they don't watch some of the other good tennis players play and enjoy the game!

Tennis is a sport without contract unlike baseball or basket, etc. I am not talking endorsements. Their success or failure is solely dependent on their own effort.

I could care less what
anyone thinks at this point!

Concerning Venus, their have been far too many times
that she has competed when she shouldn't have and
it cost her down the line. The biggest price for Venus
to pay having played while injured was the 03' W.
IMO, playing the FO cost her that title.

So, wheather Venus plays or not, it's all leading toward
the US Open and I'd rather have her healthy for that
than concerning herself with playing these less important
tournaments at the risk of cauing further damage.

I like to think Venus learned her lesson when she ignored
her father and Serena's advice. And it seems she has.


That said, I think both will play next week.

And as for this "unreliable" crap, I say to other
officials, continue to talk making public
grandiose statements and we'll see how fast
they sign-up for your tournament again. :p
