Injured Serena pulls out of China events

InternationalInjured Serena pulls out of China events

HONG KONG: Serena Williams announced on Friday that she had pulled out of two forthcoming tournaments in China citing an ongoing shoulder injury.

“I am disappointed that I will not be able to compete at the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Osarena-2pen or the China Open due to continuing issues with my right shoulder,” Serena said in a statement.

“I have been practising and playing but my shoulder is still not fit for tournament play,” she added.

Serena has not been seen on court since the US Open earlier this month, where she was knocked out by Czech Karolina Pliskova in the semi-finals and lost her long-held position as world number one to eventual champion Angelique Kerber.

Serena, 34, also withdrew from two tournaments with a shoulder injury in July, after successfully defending her title at Wimbledon.

Shoulder problems also hampered her in Rio, where her hopes of a fifth Olympic gold medal were crushed in the third round by Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina.
