Serena Williams pulls out of French Open due to injury

By Teddy Grant,

Serena Williams has pulled out of the French Open because of an injury, dashing her Grand Slam comeback.

Williams suffered a chest injury and removed herself from the tournament on Monday right before she was supposed to compete against Maria Sharapova in a fourth-round match, according to the Associated Press.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion said there was a problem with her right pectoral muscle.

“Right now I can’t actually serve,” Serena said at a news conference at Roland Garros. “It’s kind of hard to play when I can’t physically serve.”
