On Monday, America’s tennis star Serena Williams has withdrawn her name from the French Open due to injury, the second Grand Slam tournament of the year. Serena had to meet Maria Sharapova of Russia in the fourth round of the Court Philippe Chatrier here, but due to injury, she did not go to court, and Sharapova got a quarter-final ticket without any effort.
She said that it is very difficult because I like to play against Maria. This is a match for which I am always ready. It is extremely disappointing, but I have promised myself that if I do not fit at least 50 percent then I will not play.
It was the 22nd between these two legends. Serena gave birth to a baby girl in September last year. Since then, this player, who won 23 grand slams, was planning to take part in Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Serena said that I’m disappointed. I spent a lot of time with my daughter and family for this.
So it is very bad to be in this situation. Serena has won 18 consecutive titles against Sharapova. This time tennis fans were expecting another good match but this could not be fulfilled.

Actually, Serena has some problem in the pectoral muscle. She said she was unable to serve. And that’s why it’s been difficult to play for her.
