Venus Williams is sick with the flu and won't be able to play in next week's Nordic Light Open, organizers said Saturday. ``I had planned my first visit to Stockholm for several months and I deeply regret that I won't be able to compete in the Nordea Nordic Light Open,'' Williams said in a statement.
