With the US Open arriving shortly, Serena Williams’ injury will cause concern

Serena Williams has withdrawn from the Cincinnati Masters with the same back injury that forced her to retire from the Rogers Cup final.

The two-time winner of the tournament said she was “hopeful” after her practice on Tuesday morning but eventually decided that playing would not be possible.

The back injury caused her to retire from the final in Toronto at 3-1 down and with the US Open starting on August 26, a close eye will be kept on further updates from the 23-time Grand Slam winner.
