Serena Williams: “After careful consideration and following the advice of my doctors and medical team, I have decided to withdraw from the US Open to allow my body to heal completely from a torn hamstring.” … Serena Williams will miss the 2021 US Open due to injury.

Serena Williams has withdrawn from the US Open due to a torn hamstring.

A six-time singles champion at Flushing Meadows, Williams has not played since suffering the injury at Wimbledon in June.

She was forced to retire from her opening-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich after slipping on a wet Centre Court surface at the All England Club.

Williams pulled out of last week’s Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati in order to focus on her rehabilitation but she failed to recover in time for the final Grand Slam of the year.

Williams wrote on Instagram: “After careful consideration and following the advice of my doctors and medical team, I have decided to withdraw from the US Open to allow my body to heal completely from a torn hamstring.

New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world and one of my favourite places to play – I’ll miss seeing the fans but will be cheering everyone on from afar.

“Thank you for your continued support and love. I’ll see you soon.”
