The Williams & Indian Wells??

I have been following tennis for around 5 years now, and I was always curious to the answer to this question, I hope nobody will be offended if I ask?

Why did the Williams sisters vow to never return to IW, and what exactly happened there?

Thank you!

Venus withdrew with an injury. The next day, the crowd booed Serena. Venus and Serena felt their treatment there was so bad, they decided to never play there again.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Venus withdrew five minutes before they were supposed to go out on court. It was controversial because Venus and Serena's meetings were 'suspicious' back then, and Venus dominated Dementieva in her quarterfinal match.

Let them eat cake.

Were they meant to play one another, V & Rena? Thanks though!
