Crazy to think that a 5-time Wimbledon champ has only ever played 3 other grass court tournaments in her 25 year career: Eastbourne 2011, 1998, and 1997 (where she played her first ever match on grass courts and handed out a double bagel ).
This is a tough entry list though and she's still lacking in matches so I am not expecting anything unless she's healthy, but I love the intent she's showing by entering!
As she's gotten older, I would think she would need a warmup to get used to the grass a bit more. Over the years, she has shown she didn't need a warmup to be successful at Wimbledon though...
Get it, Vee!
Nice to know she's actually going to practice on grass before Wimbledon this year instead of the US hardcourts she usually practices on. Venus needs some quick points if she wants to go to the Olympics btw so that's why I see her playing this.
