By the way, Williams will be playing at this summer’s Rogers Cup in Montreal, August 13 to 22.

UPDATE July 28th: This blog entry has been expanded into a complete article where I mention the other sister, Serena, as well some of the other players in both Toronto and Montreal. Read more at Suite101: Venus Williams at the 2010 Rogers Cup on CBC, TSN and ESPN2
