Richard Williams' book - titled "Black and White: The Way I See It" - is mostly autobiographical. He says another book is on its way and that would be more on Serena and Venus.

Serena Williams' father says he "would never go back" to Indian Wells, Calif., the site of a tournament his daughter has skipped since 2001, when they were booed - and subjected to racial epithets, according to his new book.

Richard Williams says in a telephone interview it's up to Serena whether to play there again.

His book, "Black and White: The Way I See It," comes out May 6. It details how Indian Wells, in his words, "disgraced America."

Serena was on the entry list for the event this year but withdrew, citing a back injury.

Much of the book is autobiographical. Williams says he has another book on the way that focuses more on Serena and her sister Venus, who have won a combined 24 major singles titles.
