Serena Williams Withdraws From French Open: 'I've Done a Lot of Fighting'

Serena Williams Withdraws From French Open: 'I've Done a Lot of Fighting'

"I unfortunately been having some issues with my pec muscle", she explained. Right now I can't actually serve so it's kind of hard to play,"she said at the news conference. I won't know [about Wimbledon] until I get those results", she said.

Sharapova is seeded for the first time at a Grand Slam since her suspension following her confession and is playing her first French Open since 2015 after being refused a wildcard by tournament organisers past year.

This is the latest setback in Serena's comeback after giving birth to her daughter last September. "To be able to put myself back in these positions and to not shy away from these moments, to come out on center court and want the challenge of moving forward and to be able to face Serena, I think that speaks for itself".

The round of 16-match between the Tennis greats was set to be the fourth match on Court Philippe Chatrier on Monday (local time).

USA first lady Melania Trump to skip G7, North Korea summit
The absence of the intensely private first lady has prompted widespread speculation and conspiracy theories. Her mother, Amalija Knavs, was seen walking along the White House grounds around midday Friday.

However, on Sunday she took part in a third round doubles match with sister Venus, losing 6-4 6-7 (4) 6-0 to Andreja Klepac and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, and apparently aggravated an injury she had first felt the previous day.

"I'm beyond disappointed", Williams added. Muguruza hopes to make her fourth career grand slam semifinal appearance and second in the French Open.

"I tried lots of taping and support to see how it felt in match circumstances", Williams said.

"I thought [doubles] was a ideal opportunity to see how I was going".

But many fans feel this latest inquiry fired at Serena - which is now a moot point since she dropped out of the French Open earlier today because of an injury - is probably the most preposterous. It didn't really get a lot better'.

The match against Sharapova had extra intrigue because the two players had not faced each other since Sharapova served a 15-month doping ban.

She'll get an MRI on Tuesday.

"It's very hard because I love playing Maria", Williams said, per USA Today. It's a match I always get up for. Sharapova now automatically moves on to the quarterfinals. Just her game matches so well against mine.

The grants, which the law caps at $125,000 for 2019, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. State officials have already been overwhelmed with the response to the moving incentive program.

In the quarter-finals, Sharapova will play the victor of the fourth-round showdown between Garbine Muguruza (Spain) and Lesia Tsurenko (Ukraine).
