If she doesn't want to be humiliated, she better skips RG and heads to grass.

w/o after a Peterson match again. Oh well good rest for Vee who had a marathon match. I hope her knee at least gets better by Wimbledon.

Re: Shock news! Serena withdraws from Rome and Venus gets a walkover

At this point I don't see why Serena should bother playing RG, going into a clay slam with one match on the surface at 37 years old is not intelligent. She didn't move well yesterday (which is the norm these days) and it's not surprising the knee is still bothering her. That's twice this has happened to Peterson now in 2 months

Best to rehab it, take a few weeks off and prepare well for Wimbledon.

Re: Shock news! Serena withdraws from Rome and Venus gets a walkover

She still has a few days to try to recover. But of course if anything's wrong, withdrawing from Rome is the right move

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Belmont Lad, Perun and d_b_prince like this.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Olympics cycle don't start till grass season.

Though I won't say she isn't trying to help Venus.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?
