What does that mean, are you unsure about that comment?
Venus has been committed to the team for years. 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007. Fed Cup has fucked up her singles at times, so not surprised that Fed Cup sometimes doesn't fit into her schedule.
As for Serena, yes it does appear she only plays to commit for Olympics, but at the same time most of the time around the times for the ties she is injured.
