Serena Williams has announced that she will be cutting this season short, in order for her body to heal. Williams has pulled out of the China Open and the WTA Finals, which would wrap up the season. It is said that Williams would be missing out on the opportunity to win a great deal of prize money from the WTA finals, which is an event she has won five times.
It is no secret that Williams has played through multiple injuries this season. Serena commented, “I am taking a proactive step and withdrawing from tournaments in Beijing and Singapore to properly address my health and take the time to heal.” It’s definitely not the way Williams wanted to finish out her season, but we wish her well and hope she makes a full recovery for next season.
