    LOS ANGELES: Venus Williams will end her 15-year boycott of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells next week, following in the footsteps of sister Serena who returned to the event last year. The 35-year-old former world No.1 has not played the prestigious Californian event since 2001, when she and Serena were booed by sections of the crowd. Venus said she had been prompted to return after seeing the warm reception her sister received last year, when she was given a 57-second standing ovation before her opening match on Stadium Court.
