Glad to see Venus a Grand Slam champ again, but now she has yet another injury that was even noticable during the awards ceremony. Winning another WImbledon has got to be sweet but I am just wondering what we are gonna see from her the rest of 2007.

Congrats Vee and get well QUICKLY!!!

Well I'm very doubtful for Venus playing FED CUP.
I would say that Serena is a bit questionable there herself.

So Meilen Tu and Laura Granville might want to get ready, they might be getting their chance to play for their country.

This is the reason why I felt Zina could have been a little more cordial to the players, you never know when something might come up and change things.

that's what I was thinking too. But Venus is very dedicated to Zina and will do everything she can to get healthy and play fedcup. Her leg was def. hurting her. She was still walking with a limp during her post match interview with Bud. And she said she had a lot of pain in her leg.

Yes, but she also said that she thinks her leg just needs some rest! Playing four days in a row really takes a toll on your body! Hopefully it's a minor injury that will get better soon!

I don't think she's that dedicated.

She already got screwed before by Zina.
Zina should have known that without Lindsay in that FED CUP semis (which Lindsay was doubtful for anyway since it was on clay), that Venus would have had to take all the load of the team on herself after winning Wimbledon in 2005.

She let her do it. I wouldn't have done it myself. I would have just put in some other players and just focus on next year.

Venus then played Stanford after that and was tired and she played that way for the rest of the year.

If Serena doesn't play, I don't think Venus is playing.

I don't even think Venus will play even if Serena plays.
They're playing the Russians, if she's not 100% I wouldn't even consider it.
She'll likely reaggrevate this injury she has now.

I think both of them need rest. All players need the rest. FO is such a tough surface and the rain and conditions at Wimby took a physical toll on all the players. It's about time for some rest.

When is FedCup? In about a week or so? Nonsense. Venus, perhaps also Serena, should be telling Zina now to find replacement. Both should do like Federer and rest for 2 if not 3 weeks.

It's a week from now. Yes.

Absolutely agree with you. Both are not ready to play in a week or two weeks from now. Venus was laboring in the 2nd set, primarily due to muscle strain after having to play four straight days in a row. You could tell by how long she took to serve between serves and how heavy she was breathing and laboring. In addition, in her interview she indicated that she was done and could not play another day. Zina should find replacements.

lets hope not.
Hopefully both sisters can get and stay healthy for awhile. That would be amazing.

Venus should also consider skipping WTT. It fucks with her schedule and imo, she should stick to playing tour events and nothing else the rest of the year. What is her schedule anyhoo? San Diego and LA?

hmm, yes they love zina so much. and they love fedcup and representing their country and they know what is at stake. so i give it a 50/50 chance wether they're playing or not.

More like 20/80.
Why would Venus put herself in the same situation she had to deal with in 2005?

That doesn't make any sense.
This is not like playing the Belgians without Henin where only you have to stand there and that should be enough to win.

Venus and Serena will have to beat one top ten player likely not 100% with both of them likely wanting to rest to prepare for the US Open.

I hope this is the case also. She should forget fedcup and WTT. I think this is just too much right after two weeks of a major. Poor Hank, I don't think there will be much celebration going on tonight.;)

Of course Venus is injured right before I get to see her play in Fed Cup, which I am going to see next week, and then right before WTT too which I am going to see in a couple weeks :o

Yes she is.

Venus said a few days back in a post match interview
that she wanted to win for Zina more than she did for
herself. And that unless some terrible injury happened,
she'd be there for Zina.

So, I think she'll do everything possible
to be ready to play. I really do. Especially,
as well that tickets sold out so quick and that
the tie is being held in the US.

I'm surprised she's not injured because she played 4 matches in a row.

Same thing is happening on the men's side. They screwed of the schedule and it's heavy duty for everyone. Gasquet and Nole are injured now.

I hope for her own sake that she doesn't play, but then that would embarass zina since she had not even bothered speaking to meilen and laura or jill craybas. For shame zina, for shame.

I dont think so. she didnt seem to worried about the leg. You know your body just gets tired after playing so many matches and so many hours in a row. she should be good in a couple days...

she won't skip any if shes not injured..shes promised zina that she'd be there unless she gets injured bad...she seems optimistic...

as she said in her speech, if it wasnt for BJK, she wouldnt have been there collecting a $1,400,000 cheque.....the least she can do is play BJKs WTT

Yes she is.

Venus said a few days back in a post match interview
that she wnted to win for Zina more than she did for
heself. And that unless some terrible injury happened,
she'd be there for Zina.

So, I think she'll do everything possible
to be ready to play. I really do. Espeially,
as well that tickets sold out so quick and that
the tie is being held i the US.

agreed...


anyway for venus, it isnt about getting her ranking up,
its about getting matchplay and matches under her belt and in Fed Cup and even
WTT to some extent, that is exactly what she is doing..

But the thing is, Venus has kissed BJK's old, saggy ass for awhile now. The speech at the USO last year. All the times she played Fed Cup for her. The time she played the Olympics for her. She's played WTT a lot in her career. Really, I think that Billie would understand if she's injured. And did you know that the players get money for playing WTT. Really, it's to their disadvantage.

Venus is just feeling the strain of over playing, although she did say the injury was moving into her stomach.
