Pilot pen is the only tourney that she plays before a slam. Correct me if I am wrong, but I dont think that she has ever played any tourney the week before a slam besides the US Open. It works for her because she has won the New Haven title four times.

I am not sure if she has ever played Sydney (she played dubs this year). She played Gold Coast and won and then trained for OZ.

Has she ever played Strasbourg?

Has she ever played Eastbourne?

I think that she plays New Haven every year because Serena plays the last two summer warm up prior to New Haven (La and Canada) or that Ron Sharp gives her a big fat check on the side.

Venus played Sydney in 1998, ASV beat both Venus and Serena in that event.

BTW, which current player has defended her title the most consecutive years. I say Venus with four straight wins in New Haven...?

Venus plays in New Haven because every year, the organiser gives the players a bonus so they can go eat at the 7 best restaurants in New Haven. If i remember clearly, Venus loves the Malaysian restaurant there.
