WINNING WAYS

Serena Williams knows championships. Take a look back at her 17 Grand Slam singles titles.

A medical certificate from Florida podiatrist Jeffrey Rockefeller says Williams ''was treated for a chronic foot disorder which involved minor procedures on both of her great toes.''

He said she needs to minimize activity to fully recover.

Williams, the WTA player of the year after winning Wimbledon, the US Open and London Olympics, was replaced by Li Na for the exhibition on Dec. 29 in Hua Hin.
