Ser­ena Wil­liams might miss U.S. Open

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS BRIEFING -

Ser­ena Wil­liams is ques­tion­able for the U.S. Open be­cause of her re­cent foot in­jury, ac­cord­ing to the WTA Tour.

Wil­liams cut her right foot on bro­ken glass shortly af­ter win­ning Wim­ble­don, and needed stitches. The tour said last week she needed surgery and would miss three tour­na­ments lead­ing up to the Open.

On Mon­day, tour spokesman An­drew Walker said Wil­liams is ques­tion­able for the fi­nal Grand Slam of the year. Her re­turn to the Open has been widely an­tic­i­pated be­cause of her tu­mul­tuous semi­fi­nal loss there last year, when she threw a tirade at a line judge at the end of a match against Kim Cli­jsters and was fined a record $82,500.

The No. 1-ranked Wil­liams won her fourth Wim­ble­don crown and 13th ma­jor ti­tle July 3.
