Serena Williams Announces Return to Indian Wells

Serena Williams will return to the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA for the first time since 2001. William has won the tournament twice in her career, but had not played in 14 years due to an ugly incident that happened back in 2001.

“I walked out onto the court, the crowd immediately started jeering and booing. In my last match, the semifinals, I was set to play my sister, but Venus had tendinitis and had to pull out. Apparently that angered many fans. Throughout my whole career, integrity has been everything to me. It is also everything and more to Venus. The false allegations that our matches were fixed hurt, cut and ripped into us deeply. The under­current of racism was painful, confusing and unfair. In a game I loved with all my heart, at one of my most cherished tournaments, I suddenly felt unwelcome, alone and afraid.” – Serena Williams
