does anyone know Venus and Serena's upcoming schedule?
I heard that Venus is supposed to play Dubai and Doha - does that look likely?
And what is Serena's estimated return date?
just so I have something to look forward to...

hmm. this is the first I'm hearing of Rena possibly playing Charleston.

cheeky--the NAACP staged a boycott of South Carolina because they insist on flying a Confederate flag in I forget which building. But the flag is very prominent, and it is offensive to many black people in this country. Anyway, I don't know if there is still a boycott going on, but Serena, Chanda Rubin, and I believe Sandrine Testud bailed on the Charleston tournament because of it a couple of years ago.
