She cut her foot. I saw her arriving for Carmello and La La's Wedding and she clearly had on heals with some bandage on the top of her foot. They say it requires of stiches. So she won't be playing WTT this season. DAMN! Bout the only thing TTC is good for and I won't get to see Ree! :fiery:

Good. She shouldn't have played that stupid exho anyways, WTT is just one more thing that she doesn't need to commit to atm.

I dont know why Serena and Venus play this stupid event. This is the time when they should be resting/training not burning themselves out playing this pointless event.

To you guys it's a stupid event but it has special meaning to them. Venus lights up when she talks about meeting Billie Jean King at one of these events when she was young.

I just hate WTT. It stuffs up the whole schedule. If it wasn't for WTT we wouldnt have to put up with this pointless month long MM clay season.

WTT fits into the schedule wherever, they dont play 3-4 weeks of horrible dirt tournaments just so WTT can be run. Please learn something about tennis. ;)

She got enough money playing the Belgian exho, she doesn't need WTT anymore.

Thanks to BJK Chris Evert should have 21 slams. Stupid WTT.

The 3 weeks of small tournaments following Wimbledon allow for top players to take a mini break and save energy for US Open Series and US Open. Its same on mens side, with most top players taking 3-5 weeks off.

Not true. Venus loves winning MM tourneys. Unlike Serena.

Yeah, I think they do it out of respect for BJK. :cool:

Plus it's not really that taxing.

That was a one off exo where she was paid big bux to attend and put on a show for a large croud. Very different to a series of exo events playing singles and doubles.

Plaster? It's a band aid. Wonder how many events she'll miss though.

As long as Serena gets in some practice at home with Venus before the U.S. Open starts that should be sufficient.

There is always a New Haven wildcard available at the last minute if she really needs some match play. :)

Serena has demonstrated that at the very least, she has the utmost respect for Billie Jean King, and she would not make up an excuse to get out of a commitment she made to Billie Jean King. If Serena says she cut her foot and she can't play WTT this week, then Serena cut her foot and she can't play WTT this week. Hopefully, that'll be the only tennis commitment she'll have to miss this summer.

Serena Williams cuts foot, cancels Washington trip


By: Nikki Schwab




Talk about a bummer: Tennis great Serena Williams has canceled her trip to Washington.

The superstar was supposed to visit the White House on Wednesday and play tennis for the Washington Kastles, but she cut her foot last week, leaving her sidelined for the rest of the Kastles' season. Swapping one great player for another, Billie Jean King, who co-founded World TeamTennis (of which the Kastles are part) will hang out with first lady Michelle Obama instead.

It's so obvious that that Chris Chase guy over @ Yahoo hates her. He's the most unprofessional sports writer I've ever seen. The headline on Yahoo! Sports tennis is uncalled for.

Why does Serena sign up for these exhibitions and World Team Tennis if she has no intention of playing and is far more interested in participating in 'Serena's Party', walking around in stilettos? It's not like they will affect her ranking or that she has to conform to some WTA tournament designation.

....because she cut her foot. I'm assuming you read the thread. Then again, nobody really knows what the pain is like. Your assumption is not proven.
