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.
