Serena and Venus Williams withdraw from doubles at Wimbledon

After a loss to Justine Henin in the quarterfinals, injured Serena Williams announced that she pulls out of doubles.

“I’ve sprained my thumb and can’t really hit backhands,” said world No. 8 Williams.

The Williams sisters were an unseeded pair in the doubles, and the fact that they have withdrawn gives Spanish eighth seeds Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual a second round walkover. (via Reuters)
