Serena Williams is no longer in action on the second round at Roland Garros. The American forfeits the meeting with the Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova.
Williams gives up because she experienced too much pain in the Achilles tendon during the warm up. In a press conference, the three-time winner indicated in Paris that she could no longer play.
“After a short warm-up, I consulted with my coach,” said Williams. ‘I asked him what he thought of the situation and he thought it was not wise to continue playing today. My Achilles tendon has not yet recovered sufficiently after the US Open. ‘
The 23-time Grand Slam winner beat her compatriot Kristie Ahn in the first round. If Williams manages to win one more Grand Slam, she’ll match Margaret Court’s all-time record.
