Serena Williams Out for 2010

A recurring foot injury will ground the tennis champion.


Tennis legend Serena Williams is out for the 2010 season. After cutting her right foot on glass in a restaurant back in July, Williams underwent surgery to repair the damage. While practicing for the Linz tennis tournament in Austria next week, Williams experienced pain in the foot. A scan showed that the injury had not healed, so the tennis legend has pulled out of next week's tournament and will probably be out for the rest of 2010. Williams has not played since winning her 13th Grand Slam at Wimbledon. We're wishing her a speedy recovery.
