Heard lots of stuff about Serena but haven't heard a word on Venus' painful injury from the Aussi Open. Anyone heard anything and when she might be returning?

She hasn't specifically referred to that injury (as far as I know) but she's been in the gym recently and there's a video of her hitting with her friend Bryant Mckinnie so she must be okay :shrug:

I think she'll come back in Miami

I hope this is the year she decides to skip the clay court season.

Venus doesn't need to skip anything. We don't see enough of her as is. LOL

Providing Venus is fit I can't for the life of me imagine why she would skip the clay season. Venus did pretty well on clay last year, reaching the quarters at Rome, finals in Madrid and 4th round at RG. In my book that is very solid.

If Venus were to skip the clay season this year she would quite probably find herself out of the top 30, unless she had a very good result in Miami, something I don't think one could count on.

Other than Kim and Serena, I can't see who would have a better chance at Wimbledon than Venus. Ranking has very little to do with it. At the stage of her career, she should be trying to rack up a few more Slams.

Yes. She was out of shape in Melbs and subsequently was injured. I'm not too sure why she made the trek down there, however, she must have thought she had a shot. I really believe that USO semi run instilled a lot of confidence in her.

abdominal muscle torn I'm guessing of some sort down at the Australian Open in the Round 2 when she went for a winner that was awkwardly positioned...

Unlike Serena's, that injury looked pretty straightforward, and it's been a month(isn't the psoas supposed to take something like two-three weeks to heal?) I'm pretty sure she's fine.

And lawl, why would she skip the clay season when it'll get in some great practice, and a Madrid final is not something she wants to let just drop off, especially since she also has a final at Madrid. Yeah yeah, we know she or Serena could just "show up" to a slam, esp Wimbledon, and win, but it's not ideal to enter the tournament ranked so low that you'll have to face a tough seed in the early rounds.

Agree. I'm actually a lot more confident about Venus shortterm than I am about Serena. Whereas, there is no telling what one can expect from Serena over the next few months, with Venus I am pretty confident her most recent injury should be fine by Miami. The one concern with Venus is that she does strike me as quite brittle these days and there does always seem a threat that the next injury could be just around the corner. Hopefully that does not prove to be the case.

As for Wimbledon, there have been numerous occasions over the years when Venus has turned up at Wimbledon not playing her best and quite vunerable in the early rounds. Sometimes she has gotten away with and improved as the tournament went on (Kudryavetseva, Cavaday) but there have been other times when she has been caught out in those early rounds(Jankovic, Sprem) and been sent home early. I don't see that playing a full clay season should affect her chances at Wimbledon. I would actually think they would help safe guard her against an early defeat.

Venus Williams is a tennis player, not a fucking diva who can pick and choose what days she wants to show up to play.

Where? Just because Venus is injured, she gets to decide whether or not she should play on clay just because she isn't as successful there? Uh, you best not be comparing that to Maria Sharapova....

Let's try and make relevant, topical comparisons.
Your post was pretty redundant because Venus can "pick and choose". It's called scheduling and players have been known to miss out entirely certain "swings". Sadly over the years Venus has shown poor scheduling awareness imo and often played too often and at tournaments that are, to her career, pointless.

Yes actually, Venus Williams is a diva who can pick and choose where she wants to play...at least that's the way the last decade of her career seems to have played out. :lol: :tape: :lol:

Venus' schedule if anyone curious is Miami - week off- week off*- Stuttgart - week off- Madrid - Rome - week off - Roland Garros.

This is what we assume is true, though Stuttgart isn't for sure. AND * Fed Cup is in Stuttgart in April the weekend before Stuttgart event, so Venus could very well likely play that as well. It seems a very balanced schedule.

No surprise that Venus is coming back in hometown Miami - she was hardly going to ask for a wild card for Indian Wells!!!

Yeah. Seems a very sensible schedule to me too. Hope the spring/summer go well for her.
