She has signed up for the Canadian, and may not play New Haven.

Thoughts?

well in a way I'm glad that Venus is playing a tier 1 tournament and it's good to see her vary her schedule. On the other hand I did want Vee TO 5PEAT(lol) at Piolet Pen but I don't want Venus to overplay and be fatigued by the time USOPEN starts because at the end of the day that's where her results really matter.

tennisIlove09- Do you think you will go to the tournament?

No, I won't be going. I live on the other side of the county :sad: :sad:

I'm like you...I really wanted Vee to win New Haven 5 times.

I sort of wish this would be her summer line up:

Acura--to win 4th straight time
Week Off
Canada--Tier 1
New Haven--to win 5th straight time
US Open

However, I think 5 of 6 weeks is too much [2 weeks of US Open]

Still, I have hope.

I don't think she will play 3-4 weeks in a row! She never did. The last time she did was last year (Paris, Antwerp, Dubai) playing 3 in a row ... and she lost in the SF in the 3rd week! I don't think she'll do well if she plays Toronto, Pilot Pen and USO ... even in hard-courts. Why should she compromise her chances at the USO by playing that much anyways!?

Even if she doesn't play New Haven this year, she'll still have 2004 to 5-peat. Her record will still be intact next year! :)

Having said that, I wouldn't mind to see her play all 3! I'm sad though cuz, she didn't commit to Stanford this year, so I won't see her live. But I'll get to see Serena instead! :)

I think Venus will play the Acura Classic and the Canadian Open. She will probably skip New Haven. I really wanted to see Venus 5Peat ;) .... too bad ! But, she will probably play FED CUP = week-end before Stanford !

I wouldn't mind her skipping Stanford. I guessing she will.

However, I don't know if it will be a huge problem. Look at the schedule

Acura
Week off [it's the LA event]
Canada
New Haven
US Open

It's hard to say 4 straight weeks, because she has a day off in between matches at the US Open.

V will be fine
she has to play 3/4 weeks in a row at some point, because at the rate shes going, shed only play 10 tournaments
this is what i think V's schedule is

Warsaw
Rome
Paris
Wimbledon
San Diego
Toronto (big if)
New Haven
Flushing Meadows
Moscow/Zurich
Philly
Fed Cup (?)
Champs
11+3= 14 evens= #1 Ranking

I don't think Venus will play in Philadelphia. This tournament is just before the WTA Championships but, who knows?

Unfortunately, Venus will not ( I presume ) play 4 weeks in a row. That's just crazy. She will probably skip New Haven ...... :sad:

Does anyone know if Serena has committed to the JPMorgan Chase tournament? I ask because since Venus isn't defending her title at Bank of the West, it makes sense that she plays at Los Angeles becasue bfore the summer hardcourt season, she will have only played seven tournaments.
