VENUS DUBAI INTERVIEW“I made my schedule up,” Venus said last week in Dubai. “I think I’m entered in Miami, and that’s pretty much what it is.“I haven’t really given a lot of thought to (playing Indian Wells). I have just been focusing on this year.”

In regards to her younger sister’s decision, when queried about how much they discussed the tennis tournament which saw the Williams’ family viciously taunted by fans in 2001, including racist taunts, Venus reportedly said :

VENUS INTERVIEW 2“She just said, I might be playing there. I said, Oh, okay. That’s pretty much the conversation,” Venus said. ” I just respect every decision she makes, pretty much. It’s nothing complicated about it.
