Serena Williams Pulls Out of Linz

Wed October 15, 2003 04:01 AM ET
VIENNA (Reuters) - Serena Williams has pulled out of next week's $585,000 Linz WTA tournament due to personal and health reasons, the organizers said Wednesday.
"It's totally uncertain whether Serena will even compete in another tournament on the WTA Tour this year," said Linz tournament organizer Peter-Michael Reichel.

The American Wimbledon and Australian Open champion underwent knee surgery in August and is mourning the death of her elder sister, who was fatally shot in a Los Angeles suburb last month.

Williams was seeded second at the Austrian tournament, behind Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne. Russian Elena Bovina will take Williams' place.
