Venus Williams to miss Miami

Venus Williams has withdrawn from next week's Sony Ericsson Open in Miami after failing to recover from an abdominal injury.
The three-time champion is still struggling with the problem that forced her to retire in the second game of her Australian Open clash with Andrea Petkovic in January.
Williams told Tennis - Sony Ericsson Open - Home "I am very sorry to not be playing in the Sony Ericsson Open this year.
"It is one of my favourite tournaments on the circuit, especially because it is so close to my home in south Florida. I look forward to returning to the tour soon."
Williams' sister Serena is also missing as she recovers from a foot injury and a blood clot while defending champion Kim Clijsters, who beat Venus in last year's final, is a doubt with a shoulder problem.
