Venus played Eastbourne in 1998 & lost in the 2nd round 2-6 1-6 to Zvereva after a first round bye.

* i thought it was the quarter but she reached the r16 in 1997 from the qualifying.

yes unlike clay grass is a surface many players don't feel like they need to get used to by playing pre Wimbledon tournaments. Just ask Patty :lol:

I dont think Serena ever has.
Venus has never since 98 cause she lost on her birthday.
