TORONTO (Reuters) – Serena Williams’ first U.S. Open tune-up ended in dramatic fashion as the tearful American was forced to retire with a back injury while trailing Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu 3-1 in the Rogers Cup final on Sunday.
Williams, who hopes to chase a record-equaling 24th career Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open, seemed fine on court but suddenly sat crying in her chair before deciding to retire 19 minutes into the match with back spasms.
The article goes on to state the following:
Williams said the spasms began during her three-set semi-final win over Czech Marie Bouzkova on Saturday. They got so bad that she was unable to sleep and could not really move but she added that she at least wanted to try and play the final.
“I was just trying to figure out how do you play a match where you have no rotation?” said Williams.
“And I don’t want to get this far and not at least try.”
Williams apologized to the crowd, saying, “I’m sorry I couldn’t do it today. I tried but I just couldn’t do it.”
