Serena Williams, The Premier Female Tennis Player, Withdraws from The Imminent U.S. OpenAugust 21st, 2010 - 5:24 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
New York,August 21, 2010 (Just Flashed): The American tennis superstar, Serena Williams, took herself out on Friday from the forthcoming U.S. Open. The rationale behind her skipping the premier tournament this year is that she is still on the road to recovery from the surgical procedure that she underwent recently in order to fix the cuts on her right foot.
The 28-year-old Serena Williams, the physically powerful and immensely successful tennis player, has won three Grand Slams at Flushing Meadows in the singles category. These three Grand Slams are components of the 13 Grand Slams that she has attained in her career in the singles category so far. In 2009, Serena was defeated in the semifinal of the U.S. Open. That match will also be remembered on account of a nasty incident. In that tie, Serena had initiated an outburst at a line judge over a foot-fault call. This invective compelled her to shell out colossal cash as economic penalty.
Serena Williams, via her PR agent, has declared a message that she is saddened as a result of missing the U.S. Open of 2010. She has had to adopt this decision with much unhappiness. There is massive disappointment in her. She also happens to be the initial No.1 female, who will not be present at the U.S. Open, since the rankings commenced in 1975. This data has been revealed by the U.S. Tennis Association.
Serena Williams has asserted that the physicians have recommended her to refrain from participating in competitive events so that her foot can be nursed back to health. Serena has also articulated that her absence from the U.S. Open this year represents one of the most catastrophic moments in her tennis career.
Serena was supposedly wounded by a wrecked glass at a restaurant while she was in Munich in July. Her stint in Munich emerged subsequent to Serena acquiring her fourth Wimbledon singles title on July 3.
Serena had undergone surgical procedure in Los Angeles on July 15. She had already extracted herself from three hard court competitions in which she was listed to participate for the sake of effective grounding prior to the U.S. Open. Serena also passed over playing World Team Tennis.
Another American tennis celebrity, Andy Roddick, who obtained the U.S. Open championship in 2003 in the singles department, has divulged that Serena’s nonattendance is a reasonably big wallop for the tournament. He mentioned that Serena is, undeniably, the star, who would have magnetized a copious amount of spectators to the U.S. Open.
Legendary and world-class tennis player, Roger Federer, who has conquered the U.S. Open on five occasions, has expressed that Serena’s departure is an unfortunate development. He has asserted that Serena, an American, would have genuinely experienced grief while announcing her nonappearance at the tournament. The championship will be poorer without her.
