Re: Birmingham: WC for Venus

I'm happy she's deciding to play outside of PM and slams.

Re: Birmingham: WC for Venus

Good for her and for the tournament. I was there last year (fri-sun) and considered going again this year but I’ve got work commitments on the 21st I can’t rearrange. Shame!

Re: Birmingham: WC for Venus

That's very good news for the tournament. I hope she manages to get through a few rounds at least.

Re: Birmingham: WC for Venus

Defending Champion Petra Kvitova withdrew today per the WTA, her compatriot Karolina Pliskova has taken a WC just like Venus.

Whose idea was this?? Venus girl you better save that body... I don't want to see you limping in Premier events but running like a gazelle in Wimbledon exhibitions against Clijsters and playing doubles with players she's probably never met.

Venus cramming for the finals.
I feel like she wants a good Wimbledon + grass season and it's really short.

Well hopefully this doubles entry means Venus is feeling healthy. Harriet is a decent doubles player, but the first round draw is tricky on paper.

Re: Birmingham: WC for Venus

I hope she's able to play without the strapping on her elbow/arm - her serve has been such a big part of the success she's had on grass.
