Venus Williams has received a wild card to play at the Sony Ericsson Open next month.
Williams won the Key Biscayne title in 1998, 1999 and 2001.
“I am looking forward to my return to competitive tennis at the Sony Ericsson Open,” said Williams. “I have spent most of my life in Southern Florida and view the Sony Ericsson Open as a hometown event. I have had many great experiences playing there and look forward to returning in the coming weeks.”
Hmmm, a healthy Venus in the 2012 WTA title hunt?
