Serena Williams Withdraws From The US Open To Recover From Torn Hamstring

Serena Williams added herself to the list of big-name withdrawals from the U.S. Open on Wednesday, pulling out of this year’s last Grand Slam tournament because of a torn hamstring.

Williams hasn’t competed since injuring her right leg in the first set of her first-round match at Wimbledon in late June.

The American, who turns 40 next month, announced her decision to sit out the U.S. Open via a social media post.

She joins Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in sitting out the competition in Flushing Meadows, where play begins next Monday, raising questions about what the future of tennis might look like without them.
