Williams, who has fallen to 34th in the world rankings, posted on her Facebook page that an injury will keep her out of competition until next month, reports Xinhua.
"Unfortunately, I will not be able to participate in Wimbledon this year. I am extremely disappointed as I have always loved the Championships, but I need to take time to let my back heal," wrote the American Monday, celebrating her 33rd birthday.
Williams won at the All England Club in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Last year, she lost in the first round for the first time since she made her debut at Wimbledon in 1997.
She had been expected to make her 17th straight appearance at the tournament.
Williams has four further Wimbledon doubles titles to her name, all won with her sister Serena.
