Serena Williams‘ expected comeback at the Generali Ladies Linz is not to be, as she suffered “a physical problem” which appeared in her last training session for the tournament. The American decided to undergo some more medical tests and later withdrew from the $220,000 Austrian event. Will the Munich restaurant foot injury keep Serena away from the Sony Ericsson Championships as well?
Caroline Wozniacki and Vera Zvonareva are also not in action, but due to rain in Beijing which has postponed matches until Monday. Wozniacki and Zvonareva, top two seeds at the China Open, are playing the finals as the Dane overcame Shahar Peer in the semis 7-5 6-2, and Zvonareva beat home favorite Li Na 6-3 6-3.
Update: Serena said she restrained her foot because of training too hard and there is a possibility she will miss the rest of the season. (photo: sr_cranks)
