It really looks like Serena wants to be dedicated to playing tennis this year! I just hope she stays healthy and plays them all.

It's a very ambitious schedule and a lot of tournaments back to back. If she does play these events she will make up the points she lost by not repeating her Oz win. She'll also postion herself that her ranking wont plummet in the event she doesn't repeat in Miami.

It's likely she wont play all these events, but stranger things have happened.

i think she will play 3/4 before Miami!
and that is still very smart! there is still a two week break before the BIG tournament so everything is OK

She NEEDS to play as many clay court tourneys before the french as she can. (BTW, the last time she played the German Open Serena won the French Open) FCC is a waste of time IMO. Get to the red stuff and Practice, Practice, Practice. BTW, does anybody know when this new rule (the one where you have to play Indian Waste:rolleyes::rolleyes:) goes into effect?

^ 2009.

I think Serena plays all 4. Paris and Antwerp are SO weak that she knows she can get easy points. Dubai is lucrative appearance fee. And Bangalore's field is the worst in history.

She won't have to tax her body by playing all four. Of course, if she does skip one which is very likely, she'd skip Antwerp.

Yeh I dont get it, where is everyone, and why arent they entering these events :lol:

So glad Ana and JJ are playing Fed cup :D

How is Bangalore a Tier II, its field is pathetic! Check out last years draw. Not a single top 20 player :lol: :help: The number 1 seed was ranked 38! I guess its reasonable that players want to rest, and dont want a long trip to IW but surely this is still a great opportunity?!

last year it was still a tier III or maybe even a tier IV

i hope she plays all 4 ..she needs the points and she should win at least two of them :tape:

we don't need another ranking freefall this year...she needs at least a top 8 seeding for Roland Garros

Serena Williams Enters 2008 Bank of the West Classic

Article by Aaress Lawless on May 29, 2008

Serena Williams has entered the 2008 Bank of the West Classic, tournament officials announced on Thursday.

The Stanford event is the longest-running women-only professional tennis tournament in the world.

Counting Williams, four of the Top 10 women in the world have entered the singles field.

The Bank of the West Classic, which will be held July 14-20 at the Taube Tennis Stadium on the campus of Stanford University, now has commitments from Williams (No. 5), defending Bank of the West Classic Champion Anna Chakvetadze (No. 6), Marion Bartoli (No. 9) and Daniela Hantuchova (No. 10).

Williams, the former World No. 1, has already won three Sony Ericsson WTA Tour tiles this year including the Tier 1 Sony Ericsson Open in Miami bringing her total career singles titles to 31. She has posted an impressive 23-2 singles record heading into this year’s French Open.

Williams has already advanced to the third round at Roland Garros following a 6-2, 7-5 win over Mathilde Johansson in her second round match.

The Bank of the West Classic’s impressive field also features former World No. 1 and three-time Grand Slam Champion Lindsay Davenport, 2007 Bank of the West Classic finalist Sania Mirza, and former World No. 3 and seven-time tour winner Nadia Petrova.

The Bank of the West Classic, a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event, features a 28-player singles draw as well as a 16-team doubles draw. The event is owned and operated by IMG and serves as the opening women’s event of the Olympus US Open Series.
