Serena Williams Is Out of French Open With Arm Injury

Serena Williams Is Out of French Open With Arm Injury

The ongoing discussion, prior to the beginning of French Open 2018, was whether to hand Serena Williams a wildcard seed or not. I tried a lot of different tapings and support.

"It's very hard because I love playing Maria", the 36-year-old said.

"I have cried in the locker room many times after a loss, and that's what I have seen a lot of people do", Williams said, according to the BBC. "I've pretty much had every [other] injury in the book". I can only take solace in the fact I'm going to continue to get better.

A visibly distraught Serena Williams fronted media at Roland Garros overnight, following her injury enforced exit from the French open. Monday, we're set to get a great match in the women's bracket.

"I didn't expect to be reading a book about me, that wasn't necessarily true", she said, after a dazzling display against 11th seed Julia Goerges.

"We might gain one more day, and you never know how it feels tomorrow". This is so painful.

Serena Williams withdrew from the French Open Monday with a pectoral injury, shortly before she was to play her round-of-16 match against Maria Sharapova.

Williams, a triple French Open champion and 23-time Grand Slam victor, was due to renew her bitter 14-year rivalry with Sharapova in the last 16 at Roland Garros on Monday.

Williams also addressed the doping scandal, involving Sharapova taking meldonium for health issues since 2006 - the substance which was added to the list of banned drugs in 2016.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion pulled out of Roland Garros with a chest injury.

Williams: "I honestly don't have any thoughts about that". Her withdrawal follows a freaky interview excerpt that went viral over the weekend, in which a reporter asked whether she was "intimidated" by Sharapova's sex appeal (an idea which allegedly began with none other than President Donald Trump) despite the fact that Sharapova has not defeated Williams since 2004.

"Whenever I play her, I go out there the way I play everyone else". So I don't really know how to manage it yet. I said to [husband] Alexis [Ohanian], 'This is a girl.

Her voice trembled a bit during a brief news conference, where she explained she will get an MRI on Tuesday and consult with doctors before figuring out what comes next.

Wimbledon is now just under a month away, but Williams gave little indication into how serious the problem was, admitting she is "clueless" as to how to deal with this sort of problem - and that she has not experienced pain like this before.

Kasatkina will be playing in her first Slam quarter-final where she will face US Open champion Sloane Stephens.
