Injured Serena withdraws from Miami Open

Serena withdraws from Miami Open due to injury

"I am disappointed to withdraw", she said in a statement.

"I hope to be back next year to play at this one-of-a-kind tournament in front of the incredible fans here in Miami", she said.

Serena, an eight time victor in Miami, was just relieved to make it through to the third round where she will meet China's Wang Qiang who thrashed Britain's Jo Konta, the 2017 Miami Open champion, 6-4 6-0.

Williams didn't mention any health issues during a news conference after the match, and the WTA had no information regarding when she got hurt.

Williams was due to meet Jo Konta's conqueror Qiang Wang on Sunday, but is unable to compete at what is traditionally one of her favourite tournaments not far from her Florida base.

The former world number one was certainly rusty in her first ever match against the 63rd-ranked Swede, despite starting strongly and easing into a first set lead. "I got ahead of myself".

Hsieh Su-wei makes an impressive start on the main court of the new look Miami Open. "I thought, this must be good light". It was the first time in 64 matches that Osaka lost after winning the first set.

"I knew that I could play a lot, lot, lot better".

Earlier in the day, world number two Petra Kvitova overcame Croatia's Donna Vekic 6-4 3-6 6-4 in a tensely contested three-setter that lasted more than two-and-a-half hours.

"It was interesting, because first of all it was dark out there, which was really odd", Williams said. The Miami Open moved this year from Key Biscayne, where Williams won eight titles. The shadow was so intense it was actually dark.

Shapovalov had to rally from a set down to defeat Britain's Daniel Evans 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 in his second-round match.

Having failed to serve out the match, Osaka, who trailed 4-1 in the opening set, lost the second on a tie-break and then saw an early break in the third slip away as Hsieh prevailed 4-6 7-6 (4) 6-3. She had just won a prize cheque of around £950,000, along with the biggest title claimed by a British woman since Virginia Wade lifted the Venus Rosewater Dish at Wimbledon in 1977.
