Injured Serena Bows Out Of Indian Wells

Serena Williams has withdrawn from her semi-final at Indian Wells because of an injury to her right knee.
The world number one was set to play third seed Simona Halep of Romania in the semi-final of the BNP Paribas Open.
Serena was playing the Californian event for the first time since she was booed while winning the 2001 title.
Halep will face former world number one Jelena Jankovic in Sunday’s final after the Serb fought back to beat Germany’s Sabine Lisicki 3-6 6-3 6-1.
“Four months ago I began a journey to play Indian Wells and it was amazing,” said Serena.
“I never dreamed I could do it. But I would not have been able to do this without my fans.
“Though it ended early due to injury this year, I have to say I cannot wait to try again next year.”
