Injury forces Venus out of Wimbledon

Jun 19 2013, 4:22am CDT | by

London, June 19 (IANS) Five-time champion Venus Williams announced that she has withdrawn from Wimbledon due to injury.

London, June 19 — Five-time champion Venus Williams announced that she has withdrawn from Wimbledon due to injury.

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.

"I look forward to returning to the courts as soon as possible. Many thanks to my fans for the love and support and I will be seeing you very soon back on the courts," Venus said.

Williams has four further Wimbledon doubles titles to her name, all won with her sister Serena.

A lacrosse team beat another lacrosse team by so, so many lacrosse points. Because it is 2014, we were able to watch it for free instantaneously. Germany won the World Cup yesterday, but perhaps more importantly, we watched the most horrible thing we've ever seen: This was just a mean thing. This one group of people was clearly way way way better than this other group of people at something, ...

Another round at Roland Garros and another top-seeded woman falters. This time it was No. 3-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska.
