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

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.
