Los Angeles:

Venus Williams will return to the court for the Dubai Open, two weeks after pulling out of a tournament in Japan because of an injured right knee. Williams withdrew from her quarterfinal match against Chanda Rubin at the Pan Pacific Open on February 6. She also pulled out of this week's Diamond Games in Belgium because of the injury. The Dubai Open begins on Tuesday. "I am confident my injury has improved to the point that I fully expect to be taking the court in Dubai," Williams said in a statement issued yesterday. Both Venus and her sister Serena have been plagued by injuries in the last year. Serena is scheduled for a comeback at the Qatar Open in March following knee surgery on August 1. Venus returned at the Australian Open after six months off with recurring abdominal muscle problems. (AP)
