Serena Williams had to pull out of Wimbledon due to an injury, and it seems that she is not over that rough patch. The famous tennis player was forced to pull out of another big event.
Months after she pulled out of Wimbledon, Williams logged onto her Instagram and dropped another sad announcement. She will not play during the U.S. Open either. Citing her doctors and medical team’s advice, Williams explained that she torn her hamstring and still needs time to heal.
“After careful consideration and following the advice of my doctors and medical team, I have deiced to withdraw from the US Open to allow my body to heal completely from a torn hamstring, New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world and one of my favorite places to play – I’ll miss seeing the fans but will be cheering everyone on from afar.. Thank you for your continued love and support, I’ll see you all soon.”
This is a big blow to the U.S. Open tournament, because many fans might have watched just to see Serena Williams perform. That isn’t happening, but she did assure fans that she will be back as soon as she is ready.
