Tennis stars Serena Williams and Iroda Tulyaganova were hospitalized yesterday with concussions. Yet both were at a loss to explain how the injuries occured.
"I don't know how it happened," Serena said. " I was walking down the street with Iroda yesterday, and we saw some girls jumping rope. At first they were jumping individually, but then they started jumping in pairs. Iroda seemed to really enjoy that. She said, 'Hey, Serena. That looks like a lot of fun. Why don't we try it?' The next thing I know, we woke up here."
Both women were also unable to explain the bruises on their faces.
"I feel like the answer may be right in front of me," Iroda said, "but I can't quite grasp it."
The investigation into the incident continues.
