Serena NOT playing Tokyo Event

Who didn't see this one coming? Oh well. In all honesty, my initial knee-jerk reaction was that of disappointment but hey, the #1 ranking is there whenever she decides she really wants to reclaim it. Life happens, things happen. I was hoping that she would win a regular WTA tour title before the end of the year. (Initially I listed the China Open as her next tournament). Will she withdraw from the China Open? We will see. Off topic: I think I'm going to finally read her book this weekend.

Hey, just cure where you're getting this info from, because I've been looking for an official press release, but nadda so far. The website for the tournament still has her listed so not sure what to make of this. As far as Beijing goes, she has to play it as its one of the mandatory Premier events, so hopefully we'll get to see her work her stuff there!

P.S. Love your blog! I get a ton more information about Serena than I do anywhere else! Keep up the good work!

Hey Darkesaint,

Thanks for visiting the blog. I will post an "official" article referencing the withdrawal in a few. I was in a rush when I posted the article this morning. (In reference to her withdrawal, I wish it weren't true but I understand that things happen, life happens). Have a safe, enjoyable and productive day.
