Will the Williams Sisters Show at Miami?

The Williams Sisters - will they show at Miami? It's really debatable at this point! They've only played 4 matches between them and the clay court season is already upon us!!! Discuss....

Odd that you would think this. Sitting out the year does nothing for them in the long run especially if injury is not the cause and regaining their top spots are their priorities.

Add to that, the age. Venus will be 26 soon, and Serena 25.
In women tennis, that is already on the down slope of one's career.

With Serena's body type and frequent injury, it may become harder to get herself into Serena-standard shape we have come to know in the 2002-2003.

The age, fitness, and injuries are all factors as to why repititon becomes a must. As long as they want to be competitive they will have to do and not just want; sitting out if not due to injury won't work in gaining more success. I'm all for short breaks due to injury and taxing themselves, but they have to be in the game as well.

Just to clarify, I did agree with your original post arguing that sitting out the
year was not a good idea.

I realized you agreed with my initial post. I was adding on to the subject at hand.
