... should Venus to team up with someone else to play doubles?

maybe Anna K? or Martina H? (if they play) or Jennifer?

I thought that would be awesome and some kind of subsitution of Serena's absence... I would even say it will generate more interest than when Venus/Serena team plays.

Venus wouldnt do that....Serena yes, but Venus no.

and plus, she should play as little as possible with her ab strain :o

she's been out of action for about 2 months... it's enough for that kind of injury.

If Anna K and Martina H both played they would team up with each other in the doubles!

Maria Sharapova would be an awesome partner... in terms of TV ratings and crowd interest

I'd love that but both of them have been out of serious action for months... could they survive competition?

I don't think they could. I'd love that too!
But they'd certainly attract the crowd!

I think it would be fantastic for the tour if Venus and Martina H teamed up. But given Venus health, I don't think now is a good idea for her.

I think Alex will be begging Venus to team up in doubles with her, but Venus would probably tell her to fluck off.

Maybe she would play mixed with Max Myrni, or Jonas Bjorkman. I would be surprised if Venus played mixed this year. She used to love it.

I doubt Venus would play doubles, even if Serena wasn't injured, just because of her own injury.

As to saying the injury is healed after 2 months is not true. This type of injury, depending on how serious it is, can take several months, even a half a year, to heal. We don't know how serious it is, so, who is to judge when she'll be ready.

the consensus here is that Venus wouldn't play even if she is healthy... and the strange thing is that it comes from her fans who should love to see their favourite player in action. I'm always excited to see mine.

Yeah i think Alex is like this tag a long who get on Venus nerves. But there Mums are friends (althought isnt Alex mum a bit mad) And Alex and Serena are Friends.

I think Vensu should try and grab Kim they would make a good doubles pair :)

Venus needs to sit til the injury is totally healed, and then sit another week after that. I hope she can play New Haven, but I think she can win the Open without a tune-up. No one can touch her on hardcourts.

Samantha Stevenson is a complete nutcase! A few years ago she allegedy wanted to "knock Pam shrivers head off because she trashed alex's game on tv" :eek:

And ive also heard that Alex's father could be anyone of a range of football teams. :lol:

LOL I think Pams great. I love her commentary - she was criminally underused this years WImebldon by the BBC - too much goddam awful Tracy Austin, and not enough Pam and Virginia Wade, who is also very enjoyable, and makes funny and intelligent comments.

as Pam says, when something bad happens like losing a tight three setter, when your 16 you cry into your pillow, when your 25 you smash your racket, but when your 35 you say 'fuck it!' and pour yourself a hard drink!

According to a DNA test, Alex's father is basketball legend Julius Erving. Of course, given Alex's poor work ethic, I'd order another test if I were him. ;)

I think if Martina and Anna came back to play doubles it would be gr8, and i say they probably would make it to quarters.. but then mayb not cos hingis is nothing without her confidence as we saw in last years us open!!! POOR MARTINA!

I dont think Martina and Anna will play together as I dont think either of them has the confidence. I think maybe Chanda and Anna.

I think Venus should team up with someone diffrent, if she was to do that it would probably be with Alex if shes dump Laura.
