Following her second “Serena Slam” at Wimbledon, Serena Williams has played one match, that at Bastad. But she’s since withdrawn from the Swedish event, and then World TeamTennis and now the World No. 1 has announced that she will not play the WTA tournament in Stanford next week due to continued issues with her right elbow.
“I’m disappointed to have to withdraw from the Bank of the West Classic, but I need to get my elbow back to 100%,” said Serena who won the tournament last year. “The tournament is one of my favorites and the fans have always been so generous and supportive of me. I wish all of the players much success and I hope to return next year.”
Is the elbow really this bad or is she just resting?
Serena is next scheduled for the Canadian Open in Toronto on August 10. Of course her big focus this summer will be completing the calendar Slam at the US Open.
Yesterday, Serena posted this picture of her training routine:
