Good news for Serena Williams on injury front
Serena Williams has given a positive update on her arm injury following a visit to the doctor.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner was forced to pull out of her last-16 French Open clash against Maria Sharapova on Monday due to a pectoral injury.
“So today has been interesting already,” Williams said on an Instagram Story. “I just finished one exam with my doctor. The news was actually super exciting so I’m really happy about that. I’m having an MRI soon, but I wanted to keep you guys totally updated while I wait…
“Thanks for the support and the love and the understanding. It has been incredibly frustrating but also I’m excited because I feel like I’ve been playing really well and I can only go up. I’m looking so forward to going up. Hopefully you guys will be there to continue to cheer me on.”
However, there are still question marks over her fitness ahead of Wimbledon with the grass-court Grand Slam less than a month away, but her coach Patrick Mouratoglou is optimistic about her chances.
“The plan is to do everything so that (Serena) has the best chance to play at Wimbledon, and hopefully win it. Because that’s why she came back,” he said.
