Williams will not play in this injury due to a hurt foot. Juan Martin has an injured wrist which has kept him out of play since January of 2010, when he played in the Australian Open. Juan Martin had surgery in May and his game hasn’t been on since then. Though Juan has not been able to pick up a racket and participate in a tournament, he has very recently started practicing. Perhaps he will be ready to play in the upcoming months. This year at the Open, the last major of the year, expect Juan Martin to be a no show.
Venus Williams, Serena’s older sister and fellow tennis ace, does plan to participate in the United States Open. She becomes the favorite now that her sister has withdrawn. However, it is important to note that the elder Venus is also having health issues. She is currently trying to manage a knee injury, which forced her out of two tournaments, one in Montreal and the other in Cincinnati. Also, out of the United States Open on the women’s side is Justin Henin. The one-time #1 player will be out for the rest of the year. She is trying to rest up and recuperate from a blown elbow tendon, she suffered while playing in Wimbledon, I wish I had bet on Wimbledon on that match!.
