Maria Sharapova sends classy message to Serena Williams after French Open injury

After winning her first Grand Slam match post-maternity leave last week-and drawing comparisons to a superhero in the process-Serena Williams, the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion, has announced that she will withdraw from the 2018 French Open.

"I unfortunately been having ome issues with my pec muscle. right now I can't actually serve so it's actually hard to play when I can't physically serve", she said.

Williams admitted she now faces a race against time in order to be fit for the grass court season and Wimbledon.

Williams, the champion in 2002, 2013 and 2015 and playing her first Slam since giving birth to her daughter in September, last took part a major at the Australian Open in 2017.

She told reporters she was "beyond disappointed" she wouldn't be able to play her highly anticipated fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova.

Yesterday's match was to have been the first between Williams and Sharapova in more than two years.

"I've never felt this in my life", she said.

The Belgian believes Williams can still add to her Grand Slam collection, though.

Salah ‘Confident’ Of Playing In World Cup

The 24-year-old Garcia's face was in the front page of L'Equipe on Monday, quoting her as saying her goal was to "win a Grand Slam", and she did not change her statement after her 6-2 6-3 defeat on Court Suzanne Lenglen. "The first time I felt it was against [Julia] Goerges in my last match. It didn't get a lot better".

"I have cried in the locker room many times after a loss, and that's what I have seen a lot of people do", Williams said, according to the BBC.

Third seed Muguruza, bidding for a second title in Paris after her 2016 triumph, was 2-0 ahead when Tsurenko pulled out with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

In the quarter-finals, Sharapova will play the victor of the fourth-round showdown between Garbine Muguruza (Spain) and Lesia Tsurenko (Ukraine). I didn't manage to find the rhythm, to be focused on my match. I sacrificed so much to be at this event.

Williams said her chest began hurting in her third-round singles victory over 11th-seeded Julia Goerges on Saturday.

"I made a promise that if I'm not at least 60 percent or 50 percent, then I probably shouldn't play", she added.

"I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she returns to the tour soon".

"It is hard because, like I keep saying, I have given up so much to be here".
