Venus' last 4 tournaments have been the 4 grand slams consecutively. Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open.

She played high quality players in Hong Kong, no? Even though it is not WTA, but what really is difference? She's got match practice in and if she chose not to play any warm-up tournaments, really could not be used as an excuse for sub par play

oh please it was still a shitty exhibition tournamnent.Nothing like a real tournament to see how a player faces the pressure.

Wow, I knew she didn't play much last year, but I didn't know that the last WTA tournament she played was Madrid. I assumed she played one the US Open series tournaments.

An exhibition isn't remotely close to a major, just like a tour final isn't a slam final.

a match is match and as for the pressure - it's what a player makes of it

Venus has won the Hongkong tournament a couple of times and the tittle wins are not included in her records, plus amost no one ever mentioned about them. That's why exhibitions are not counted ;). This shows you have a quick mind, but quickness isn't always good. be a bit more patient then you dont have to regret about opening the thread (this is not worth a thread anyway).
.........waiting for the thread to be deleted....
