Sorry if someone has posted this already :wavey:

Venus to skip doubles
By Chris Jones, Evening Standard
16 June 2003
Former champion Venus Williams could struggle to make an impact at this year's Wimbledon because of a chest-muscle injury, writes Chris Jones.

Younger sister Serena, the defending champion, has revealed that the problem that ruined Venus's bid for glory at the French Open earlier this month means they cannot team up and defend their Wimbledon doubles title.

She said: "I don't think Venus should have played at Roland Garros. I will miss the doubles very much but it's not fair to put stress on her injury.

"I am sure I will get chill-bumps walking back into Wimbledon and not holding on to the French title was a disappointment but it only took me 20 minutes to get over that hurt.

"I am tough on myself when I lose and I am extremely determined coming into Wimbledon."

Well, when I read about Serena playing mixed doubles and then the reports on the Women's doubles as well, I wondered if both stories were correct, as I could hardly see Serena competing in all three events.

Now it makes more sense why she would be playing mixed doubles.

Yeah, right, we believe that !

We will see if this is correct, if she meets Justine at Wimbledon. It was clear that the loss at Charleston spooked Serena when she met Justine at RG. Her confidence has been affected. She was very nervous playing Justine.

It's very much possible that Serena thinks she doesn't have herpes simplex. The reality is that 90 % of the human race has this virus.

Every time Justine gets nervous her herpes breaks out.
