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London, June 19 (IANS) Five-time champion Venus Williams announced that she has withdrawn from Wimbledon due to injury.

London, June 19 — Five-time champion Venus Williams announced that she has withdrawn from Wimbledon due to injury.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

However, this has proven to be an elusive sight in men's tennis at the U.S. Open in recent years. For the 11th year in a row, there will be no chance of host-country hero in the men's singles section of the 2014 U.S. Open. Novak Djokovic and Philipp Kohlschreiber bested the final tw ...

2014 U.S. Open bracket update: Simona Halep knocked out, Thomas Berdych holds on

Aug 29 2014 11:39pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Although she is the bigger name, 19-seed Venus Williams was not even the higher seed in her own match -- that would 13-seed Sara Errani, who beat Venus in three sets 6-0, 0-6, 7-6 (5)  -- let alone the highest seed to lose on Friday in the Women's draw of the 2014 U.S. Open. That honor belonged to Simona Halep, whose solid performances in 2014's previous Grand Slams had lead her to the two-seed in Flushin ...
