(July 10, 2014) World No.1 Serena Williams has pulled out from next week’s Swedish Open.
She withdrew from her doubles match with her sister Venus at Wimbledon last week with a virus.
“I want to be in perfect condition to go back on court, but unfortunately it’s not the case,” she said. “I really hope to be able to get back to training from next week.
“I want to thank all my fans and the event organizers, for their support and comprehension.
“Bastad was my favorite tournament I played in last year, thus I am very disappointed not to come back there. But there is still next, year, so I can’t wait to go back there.”
