山东十一选五预测 www.3ly15.cn The BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells is arguably the most prestigious non-Slam tournament on the tennis schedule, but once again in 2019, several players have been forced out of the tournament while battling a virus.
Serena Williams retired from her third-round match with Garbine Muguruza in the second set, citing "extreme dizziness." Williams had lost the first set, 6-3, but made an attempt to continue in the second set after being attended to by trainers.
Serena: "Before the match I did not feel great, & then it just got worse w/ every second; extreme dizziness & extreme fatigue. By the score, it might have looked like I started well, but I was not feeling at all well physically.
