Serena Williams withdraw from US Open with injuries

August 26, 2021

The 23-time Grand Slam champion has withdrawn from the US Open, which begins on Monday next, as she continues recovery from a torn hamstring she suffered in her Wimbledon opener. The American, who turns 40 next month, announced her decision to sit out the U.S. Open via a social media post.
“After careful consideration and following the advice of my doctors and medical team, I have decided to withdraw from the US Open to allow my body to heal completely from a torn hamstring,” Williams wrote in Wednesday’s post.
Her note ended with: “I’ll see you soon.”
The former world No. 1 has been chasing her 24th Grand Slam title to match Margaret Court’s all-time mark and bidding for a seventh US Open title to take sole possession of the Open Era record she shares with Chrissie Evert.
