I just heard on ESPN2 from Chris Fowler and Co. that World No. 1 Serena Williams has withdrawn from the US Open.
Serena had surgery last month after mysteriously cutting her foot just before an exhibition in Belgian with Kim Clijsters.
After missing the entire summer WTA circuit the two-time champ is now out of the US Open.
I think we all figured she be ready to play in New York City, so this is disappointing news for tennis and for the tournament. Justine Henin is also out of the US Open, and out for the rest of the year.
It’s also worth noting that big sis Venus is also ailing with a knee.
Caroline Wozniacki will be the top seed.
Now back to watching Roddick-Djokvoic.
