Women's world number one Serena Williams has withdrawn from the Madrid Open because of flu, the tournament's organisers said on Friday.

"Unfortunately, I have to withdraw from Madrid because I've been battling the flu and I'm not at 100 percent. I look forward to returning soon," Williams said in a statement.

Agnieszka Radwanska is now the top seed at the event.
