Serena Williams withdraws from Miami Open

SERENA Williams has pulled out of this week’s Miami Open after having oral surgery.

“I am disappointed to withdraw,” said 39-year-old Williams, who has won the Miami Open eight times.

“Miami is a special tournament for me because it’s my home and I am sad I won’t be able to see the incredible fans this year.”

The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion was knocked out of the Australian Open semi-finals by Naomi Osaka in January.
