Venus Williams Out Of Madrid
10.28.2007 MADRID-- Venus Williams, originally in seventh place in the Race to the Sony Ericsson Championships points standings, has been forced to withdraw. Following the incident of dizziness that she suffered at the US Open earlier this year, Venus underwent a series of tests.

Along with follow-up tests after returning from tournaments in Asia in the fall, and with her doctors' advice at this time to finalize the testing process, Venus is taking a break from competitive play.

"This year has been a great one for many reasons," said the Wimbledon winner. "I am pleased that I finished the year in the top eight and in recent weeks I have remained optimistic about participating in the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships. Nevertheless, the accumulation of matches has taken its toll and I have received several medical opinions to delay my return to competitive tennis. As a result, I will miss the Sony Ericsson Championships. I look forward to playing in the New Year for what will hopefully be an even better 2008." MADRID Information/Forum

Williams is seventh in the points race with 2470 points. Venus' sister Serena Williams has already qualified which means should Venus make it also, we could see the first Williams vs Williams of 2007.

Pennetta Surprises Venus At Bangkok
10.13.2007 BANGKOK-- The Tennis Channel did not televise Venus' semfinal loss to Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 7-6(10-8) today, but I'm hearing Venus made too many errors and the court played slowly. Also Pennetta supossedly ran down a lot of balls. The good news is Venus probably got enough points from playing the last three weeks to qualify for the upcoming WTA year end championships in Madrid.

Pennetta is ranked 49th and lives in Verbier, Switzerland. I don't think she has the weapons to take Venus out tomorrow.

Head to head Venus leads Caroline 2-0, winning last week at the Japan Open 6-3, 7-5. If Venus' thigh is better and she keeps her error count low, I think she should win.
Our pick: Venus Williams in straight sets.

With Yet Another Injury, Venus Loses
10.06.2007 TOKYO-- It seems now Venus Williams is almost always injured including tonight's(USA time) Tokyo final loss to Virginie Razzano 4-6, 7-6(9-7), 6-4. Venus had three matchpoints in the tiebreaker before leaving to court to have her upper right thigh wrapped. Two good points still to take away from the match: I discovered and watched the match when seeing that the Tennis Channel was showing it live from the middle of set two. Point two is that playing Tokyo put Venus closer to a spot at the year end eight player tournament at Madrid.

Venus Williams Reaches Tokyo Final
10.05.2007 TOKYO-- Venus Williams Friday defeated Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 7-5 in the semifinals to move into Saturday's final versus 5th seeded Virginie Razzano of France. Williams fought back from 2-4 in set two to oust Wozniacki. Head to head Williams leads Razzano 2-0, last winning this summer at San Diego 6-2, 6-4. Razzano is moving up the rankings and I think she could take a set if Venus makes errors, but Venus should win the match.
Our Pick: Venus Williams in straight sets.

Venus Williams Into Tokyo Semifinals
10.04.2007 TOKYO-- Venus Williams this week has won three straight set matches to advance to tonight's (USA time) semifinals versus Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark. Head to head Venus leads 1-0, winning in Memphis this year 6-4, 6-4. Caroline is only 17 and I think she will be outplayed. I saw the Memphis match however and it was close so Venus will need to be ready.
Our Pick: Venus Williams in straight sets.
