Venus Williams Ends 2013 In Beijing
10.05.2013 Venus Williams ended her 2013 tennis year with a second round loss to the 13 seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-1, 6-2. This was not a good result; however, the week before in Tokyo, Venus had an outstanding week reaching the semifinals before losing to the 7th seeded Petra Kvitova 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(9-7). I saw that match and Venus had a great start but made too many errors in the final few games including the tiebreaker.

Venus Williams Pulls Out Of Madrid
05.05.2013 Venus Williams is in Madrid, Spain this week to promote her Eleven line of tennis clothes and was also scheduled to compete in the first round Sunday at the Mutua Madrid Open but she was forced to withdraw. Venus pulled out of the tournament Sunday due to a back injury which unfortunately has been a reoccuring problem over about the last year for Venus. Venus lost in the second round at Madrid last year so she doesn't have very many WTA Tour rankings points to defend at all at Madrid. But it would be good if Venus could play next week at Rome and do well also at the French Open so she can get a 16 or better seed at Wimbledon. Venus is now ranked 21 in the WTA Tour rankings.

Venus Williams Ousted In Charleston Quarterfinals
04.18.2012 CHARLESTON-- It was an interesting way to begin her claycourt season as Venus Williams earlier this month at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, South Carolina, USA came within one match of playing her sister Serena Williams in the semifinals. The Williams sisters have not faced each other in a WTA Tour match since 2009.

Once again at this tournament Venus showed flashes of greatness and improvement before falling in the quarterfinals to a top ranked opponent. Venus beat the 7th seeded Jelena Jankovic 7-5, 6-0 before going out in the quarterfinals to the 2nd seeded Samatha Stosur 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. I saw part of the quarterfinal but missed the end. Venus was hitting the ball well in the part I saw, but Stosur had Venus on the run in several other points with her huge forehand.

Williams, who entered the tounament with a wildcard, upset the third seeded Petra Kvitova and the 15th seeded Ana Avanovic before falling to the fifth seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-4, 6-1 in the quarterfinals. Williams appeared to be physically tired during the match; possibly an affect of winning three three set matches in a row as well as her Sjogren's syndrome: an autoimmune disorder that can lead to dry eyes, dry mouth and painful joint problems.
