Serena Williams Pulls Out of French Open Over Injured Achilles & Is “Struggling to walk”
Serena Williams has officially ended her latest bid for a 24th Grand Slam title. Today (Sept. 30th), the tennis star withdrew from the French Open before her second-round match due to an injured Achilles heel. She explained that she hurt herself during her semifinal loss at the U.S. Open three weeks ago and is
“struggling to walk.”
Serena Williams explained that she hasn’t had
“enough time to properly heal”.
“I love playing tennis, obviously. I love competing. And I love being out here. It’s my job; been my job. And I’m pretty good at it still,” Williams said. “So until I feel like I’m not good at it – then I’ll be like, ‘Oh, OK.’ And I’m so close to some things, I just feel like I’m almost there, so I think that’s what keeps me going.”
