Venus says She Plans On Returning for US Open

VenuswilliamsBy The Associated Press

Venus Williams says the bad back that forced her out of Wimbledon shouldn’t keep her out of the U.S. Open two months from now.

During a conference call with reporters Friday, the seven-time Grand Slam champion said, “I definitely have full expectations to be at the Open.”

Back home in Florida, Williams says she’s keeping tabs on Wimbledon where her sister, Serena, has a third-round match Saturday against Kimiko Date-Krumm.

Venus Williams said she’s spending time at the gym and also working on projects.

She’s being featured in a documentary on ESPN called “Venus Vs.,” which chronicles her efforts in trying to get equal pay for women in tennis.
