Serena Williams withdrew from the $1 million Acura Classic on Monday night because of a left quadriceps strain. Williams, the world's No. 1 ranked player and winner of five of the past six Grand Slam titles, pulled out of the tournament because the injury was causing her considerable pain in her left knee, WTA Tour spokesman Darrell Fry said. The injury was originally believed to be tendinitis.


This time off will give SERENA a chance to recover, go to some additional parties and allow other players the chance to win an event. :)

The Acura Classic probably interferes with her air-brush photo shoot schedule
