Serena Williams' comeback from her latest layoff will be delayed. Williams, who hasn't played since losing in the third round of the Australian Open in January, withdrew Friday from the Nasdaq-100 Open, which begins next week. Williams has been hampered by left ankle and knee problems for months and has played 31 matches since the beginning of 2005.
