The 37-year-old won the first three games of the match but called for the trainer after losing six in succession to the Spaniard.

Unfortunately, Williams lasted just one more game, looked weak and dizzy, and retired 0-1 down in the second set.

"Before the match, I did not feel great, and then it just got worse with every second; extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue", Serena said in a statement.

"I felt that maybe she wasn't feeling well", said Muguruza.

"I will focus on getting better and start preparing for Miami".

Reports say Chiefs expected to sign safety Tyrann Mathieu
Landon Collins and Mathieu both landed themselves monster deals and Thomas is undoubtedly looking to top both players' salaries. Kansas City's defense ranked 26th in defensive efficiency and allowed the second-most passing yards per game (273.4) in 2018.


Tournament officials said the former world number one was suffering from a viral illness.

Former Wimbledon and French Open champion Muguruza was happy with the way she had been playing against Williams before the American's retirement.

Williams, now ranked number ten in the world, has won a record 23 Grand Slam titles - one more than former record holder Steffi Graf. Svitolina awaits the victor between Jennifer Brady and Ashleigh Barty (who are now tussling on-court), and regardless of who wins that match, the Ukrainian will have a tough time tackling her then opponent.

Nadal, a three-time Indian Wells victor, needed just 72 minutes to get past over-matched Jared Donaldson, 6-1, 6-1.

Muguruza hopes for more good feelings in her next match, a fourth-rounder against Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. Bertens will play the 20th seed Muguruza in the pre-quarter-finals.

Trump claims Cohen 'directly' asked for a pardon
Trump never ordered him to lie when they met and just repeated his talking points on no-Russia-collusion. A couple of hours later, Trump issued another tweet that seemed more like something he'd actually say.


Halep, the 2015 champion, was challenged but got past qualifier Kateryna Kozlova 7-6 (7-3) 7-5.

Kozlova led 6-5 and was within two points of winning the first set before Halep forced a tiebreaker in their first meeting.

"I think I played well in the first set and he didn't, and then things go very quickly", Federer said in his news conference".

"I'm really happy I found a way in that second set".

Important results: Men: Second round: Stan Wawrinka bt Marton Fucsovics 6-4, 6-7 (5), 7-5; Roger Federer bt Peter Gojowczyk 6-1, 7-5; Rafael Nadal bt Jared Donaldson 6-1, 6-1.

Rory McIlroy doing everything right but winning
Starting his day on the back nine, two bogeys and a birdie still had Lee at one-under at the turn, but then things got messy. Phil Mickelson was back at Bay Hill for the first time in six years and was entertaining as ever.


In the fourth round, Vondrousova will face another seed in the world no. 2 Halep.
