Serena Williams might miss U.S. Open
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.
