Top-ranked Serena says no to Indian Wells again

0

ST. PETERSBURG, United States: World number one Serena Williams has withdrawn from next month’s WTA tournament at Indian Wells, an event which she entered last month after boycotting it since 2001. The move came only a few hours after the 17-time Grand Slam singles champion withdrew from next week’s $2.4 million WTA event in Doha, Qatar, due to a back injury she suffered at the Australian Open. Williams, however, did not cite her injury as a reason for deciding against playing at Indian Wells in March. “After careful consideration, I will not return to the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open this year,” Williams said. “I send my best wishes to everyone involved with the tournament.”
