CNN – Serena Williams has been forced to withdraw from the Miami Open due to a knee injury.

Williams, who won the most recent of her eight titles at the tournament in 2015, recorded a hard-fought victory over Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson in her opening game.

Serena: “I Touch Myself

Two weeks ago, the 23-time grand slam champion retired from her third-round Indian Wells match against Garbine Muguruza citing “extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue,” which tournament organizers later identified as a virus.

“I am disappointed to withdraw from the Miami Open due to a left knee injury,” said Williams.

“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.”
