Serena Williams ‘disappointed’ as she becomes lastest big-name Miami withdrawal
The Miami Open has lost another big-name star after Serena Williams pulled out due to recent ‘oral-surgery.’
Miami is Serena’s home tournament, and it is one she has always traditionally played.
However, after a recent bout of dental pain, she has been forced to withdraw from the tournament this year.
“I’m disappointed to withdraw from the Miami Open because of recent oral surgery,” Serena Williams said.
“Miami is a special tournament for me because it’s my home.
