She said after her last match she was tired and burnt out and didn't really feel like fighting anymore. Does that mean she will skip the chmps? She's not very good on indoors anyway and needs to rest up. Anyone know for certain?

I think she will. She has semifinal points to defend an if she doesn't defend them and Venus defends hers, Venus will move back to number five, I think.

She will be fined heavily if she does not show up. I think she will play.

Jennifer will play. She has already said that she is looking forward to it, and discussed the new format.
She has a break right now, so I think she will come to the event fresh and hungry!

Last year she was the most rested player at the YEC after she took a similar break during the fall indoor season, and made it to the SF. I think she is really looking forward to this event and has said as much several times this year. I dont see her missing this at all. She will have had 5 weeks off by the time the event starts--- plenty of time for a vacation/break and to train for this event!!!!

Somehow I don't think either Venus or Jennifer gives a damn about the number five ranking! :rolleyes:

She'd be crazy not to - with Serena out there is a great opportunity there for her.

You're right she's been burning up the tour since Wimbledon.

I hope she will. As stated above, she's had a long rest and I feel that the YEC is important to her. Plus its in USA so that will help too!

I'd say I'm 99% sure Jen will play! :)

As much as Jen stuggles indoors, she said last year that she felt very comfortable in the Staples Center and the lighting didn't bother her.

If she doesn't ask for a wildcard for Philadelphia, she will have had a longer break this year than last year, where she made it to the qf's in Linz.

I think Jen is looking forward to this tournament and I think she will play.

I hope so. Otherwise it'll be boring. As a broadcaster, I'm aware of just how entertaining Jen is. Oh, and she won the French 25 years after me.

Jennifer will play! I know how motivated she is when it`s coming to the big tournaments. :bounce: I don`t really understand this post. :confused: Jen said she feels tired and like someone said she has her break now. She never said she won`t play any more matches this season. :rolleyes:

jen will play.. but i have a feeling she will have great matches but lose and will not advance to the semis or further... could lose to better indoor players [say the two russian myskina/dementieva?]

Jenny will be a semifinal beauty at most in this tournament.;)
