    Knee Takes Serena Williams Out of Italian Open

    Due to face sister Venus after beating Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson this week in the first round of the Italian Open, the 37-year-old dropped out, citing pain from a previously injured left knee. For now, the four-time Rome winner says she’s “concentrating on rehab.” It’s the third consecutive withdrawal from an event over health concerns by the world’s 11th-ranked player.

    How serious is her injury? That remains to be seen — though she’s not ruling out her appearance at the French Open later this month.
