Venus Williams to skip Rogers Cup event
TORONTO, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Tennis star Venus Williams has dropped out of Toronto’s Rogers Cup event scheduled for next week.

No official cause for Williams’ decision was announced. The move comes as the hard-hitting star has been enjoying a bit of a resurgence.

Thanks to championships this year at Wimbledon and the Cellular South Cup in Memphis, the 27-year-old is currently ranked No. 14 in the world.

The Wimbledon title gave Williams a total of six career major championships. Her 2007 victories came after numerous injuries had significantly limited the former world No. 1’s playing time.

Williams has only been able to enter nine Women’s Tennis Association tournaments this year.

Venus Williams Withdraws From Toronto Event


Wimbledon champion Venus Williams has withdrawn from next week's Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto.

Wimbledon champion Venus Williams has withdrawn from next week's Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto because of tendonitis in her right knee, the WTA said on Wednesday. After being upset in the quarter-finals of the San Diego Classic last week by Russia's Anna Chakvetadze, Williams said she was exhausted and needed a break.
"I'm at the end of my rope now," Williams said in San Diego. "I should have planned my schedule better. I'm feeling maxed out."
Williams is next scheduled to compete at the U.S. Open which starts later this month.

Williams sisters among notable withdrawals in Toronto

Associated Press

TORONTO -- A 15-foot-high Serena Williams banner flapped in the breeze outside Rexall Centre on Saturday.


It's as close as Canadian tennis fans will get to the former world No. 1, at least this year.


Williams was one of several noticeable absences from Saturday's singles draw for the $1.34-million Rogers Cup women's tennis tournament. Nearly 50 numbers were pulled from a silver chalice during the 40-minute ceremony, but the talk afterward centered on who wasn't drawn.


The event, which begins Monday, has been crippled by withdrawals, with five of tennis's most recognizable faces bowing out of the tournament.


Williams is battling a nagging thumb injury, while sister Venus has tendinitis in her right knee. Martina Hingis of Switzerland is nursing back and hip ailments. France's Amelie Mauresmo, a two-time Canadian champion, is recovering from an appendicitis.


Maria Sharapova's absence may be the most damaging of all. The world's No. 2 player and clear fan favorite officially pulled out Saturday after advancing to the semifinal of a WTA event in Los Angeles. The same thing happened last year, when Sharapova missed the event in Montreal due to her schedule. She went on to win the U.S. Open two weeks later.
