Venus is at a point in her career where I doubt she cares about what size the tournament is. I think she just wants to travel the world playing places she hasn't been or enjoys. :)

I know Venus really liked Seoul when she played Sharapova at that exhibition in 2005.

Venus likes to travel to different places in the world instead of going to the same places all the time :worship:

i dont know..
i just think that she wants to get more of her confidence back,
probably she wants relaxed matches..
where she doesnt have to fight as hard as times...

and she might have really liked the surface there...
she did beat sharapova there...

Seoul is at the same time as Lux...

Wimbledon winner...
playing tier III n tier IV n a tier I in the fall
.. would be cool...

Why? It's called $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Same reason Aggasi, Seles, and many others play these. Appearance fees. She could probably lose in the first round and make more than the tournament's published purse.

get over it. She will play where she wants, and despite what you may think or hope, she doesn't really care what you think :)

Wasn't Venus also supposed to play a tier IV after the US Open in 2005? She pulled out of that one.

That lefts me wondering if Venus didn't play LA and Toronto in order not to get to the top 10 and make herself unavailable to play Seoul :tape:

What's a Wimbledon champ doing playing a Tier IV? Making a six-figure appearance fee, that's what. Hate the game, not the player.

So what?

It's good for Korean tennis fans as they get to see a top class champion play tennis, and not have a draw where the highest seed is ranked below #40.

Relax, my friend. I'm not saying it's a bad thing; after all, Venus plays tennis for money, so if someone guarantees her six figures to play in a tournament, and she doesn't have to worry about bullets and bombs going off around her while she plays, why not take it?

I still think appearance money defeats the purpose of prizemoney. Also it hardly helps the integrity of tennis.

It's not about whether Venus can play Tier III/IV events or not. Of course she can.
It's about a Wimbledon champion playing Tier IV instead of the biggest and most prestigious Tier II tournament (Porsche Grand Prix) and Tier III instead of the biggest indoor Tier I event (Kremlin Cup).

frontier
Aug 15th, 2007, 01:29 PM
I am sure she will get royal treatment and financial reward to make her happy.Maybe she weighed her options losts of shopping in South Korea and after Fed cup I sure she wouldnt want to be found in Moscow.I am sure the Koreans invited her just like they did in 2005 for exo.

Geisha
Aug 15th, 2007, 02:29 PM
I have no idea. As a Venus fan, I know she could be winning Tier IIs and higher...she shouldn't be playing these no-name tournaments where she has to travel across the world to attend. And, I highly doubt it is about the money. She has tons of it anyways.

In '04, Maria committed to these tournaments way before winning Wimbledon, so I don't really blame her. Venus, on the other hand...
