Serena Officially Withdrew

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?sl...ov=ap&type=lgns


July 28, 2003
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) -- Serena Williams withdrew from the $1 million Acura Classic on Monday night because of tendinitis in her knee.

Williams, the world's No. 1 ranked player and winner of five of the past six Grand Slam titles, pulled out of the tournament due to recurring pain in her left knee, WTA Tour spokesman Darrell Fry said.

Williams would've been the top draw for the event that includes seven of the top 10 ranked women. She canceled an afternoon interview session because she was seeing a Los Angeles-area doctor.

The injury also forced Williams to withdraw before the start of last week's Bank of the West Classic at Stanford. She has not played since her three-set win over sister, Venus, at Wimbledon in July.

Venus, the fourth-ranked player, previously pulled out of this tournament because of a stomach injury.

No. She replaced Alexandra Stevenson, who withdrew this afternoon. Whoever was the next highest ranked loser from qualifying will take Serean's place.

I should be happy because now Jenn has another chance at the final, but I hope Serena gets better ASAP.

I hope Serena recovers quickly but it's a real shame for tennis that she's so often injured (Venus too). I think the game really misses out from not having her there, even though it probably means more titles for Kim.
