New York - Serena Williams has undergone surgery on her big toes and withdrawn from an exhibition match against top-ranked Victoria Azarenka in Thailand this month.

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."

She needed to minimize activity to fully recover, he added.

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 December 29 in Hua Hin.

    That woman is my favourite tennis player, I di not follow tennis nor like and love it but due to the love I had for that woman I now know how to even read tennis score and play it a bit, I love this tennis player and wish I can one day meet her. I wish you a speedy recovery my dear as without you I will not watch any tennis matches.
