Serena, and to an extent, her sister, has built a career on playing in just the major tournaments. (the slams and 1000 series events)

Hmmm, I wonder why the reporter chose "jaded" Serena...? Granted jaded can mean overworked...etc. but it also has a negative connotation of being cynical because she felt slighted. Nothing in the story suggest she has a lack of interest in playing in the Pan Pacific Open. The reporter could have chosen a better adjective. Fatigued, exhausted, weary, drained are probably more appropriate words, IMHO.

She's what, 32 years old? Everyone playing an intense sport starts to slow down at that point.

@Photoman - How about Date-Krumm ?
