Indian Wells Women’s Preview: Serena Williams Returns to Cushy Draw

All the hubbub surrounds Serena, but Venus is not ending her boycott since last playing in 2001. “I made my schedule up,” Venus said about missing IW again. “I’m entered in Miami, and that’s pretty much what it is. I haven’t really given a lot of thought to it. I have just been focusing on this year…I just respect every decision [Serena] makes, pretty much. It’s nothing complicated about it.”

So that’s one of the beauties of continuing to play as you get a lot of the years under your belt.”
