(Note language in seventh paragraph) Feb 4 (Reuters) - World number one Serena Williams has buried the hatchet and will return to Indian Wells to play in the tournament she has boycotted for 14 years after suffering racist abuse. "It has been difficult for me to forget spending hours crying in the Indian Wells locker room after winning in 2001, driving back to Los Angeles feeling as if I had lost the biggest game ever -- not a mere tennis game but a bigger fight for equality," the 33-year-old Williams wrote. "It is with that love in mind, and a new understanding of the true meaning of forgiveness, that I will proudly return to Indian Wells in 2015." Williams won her second title at the showpiece event in 2001, beating Kim Clijsters in a final marred by the behaviour of some fans who booed and heckled the American and her family, apparently in response to sister Venus withdrawing injured from their semi-final.
