Serena Williams disappointed as injury forces her to miss Maria Sharapova clash

Serena Williams disappointed as injury forces her to miss Maria Sharapova clash

Also, Sharapova opened up about her relationship with Serena Williams, in her book 'Unstoppable: My Life So Far.' She described Williams as an intimidating personality.

"I unfortunately have been having some issues with my pec, my pec muscle, and (it) has unfortunately been getting worse to the point where right now I can't actually serve".

"I think there is a lot of things in her game that she's done much better than I have".

Williams' Wimbledon fate rests on scans of her injured pectoral muscle as the American comes to terms with an abrupt exit from the French Open.

Muguruza, who won the French Open in 2016, is set to play the next round against Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine, who beat Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova 6-2, 6-4.

"I have given up so much to be here".

"I'm beyond disappointed. I gave up so much and gave everything on the court, all for this moment", Williams told a hastily-arranged news conference. This would have been their 22nd career meeting; Williams has won 19, including the past 18.

It was in Melbourne that Sharapova tested positive for meldonium after which she served a 15-month doping ban.

She and Sharapova were scheduled to play a fourth-round match Monday. "It didn't get a lot better", she added.

Despite her well-documented fall-outs with Sharapova, Williams insisted she had been looking forward to the match.

"It's really hard to be in this situation, but. for now in my life, I just always try to think positively and just think of the bigger picture and hopefully (I can play in) the next events and the rest of the year". Her continued participation in the game after becoming a mother makes her case for being the greatest of all time a tad bit stronger.

Sharapova released her book in September 2017 where she had written that Serena "hated" her because she had heard her cry after 2004 Wimbledon final.

"I made a promise to myself and to my coach and to my team that if I'm not at least 60% or 50%, then I probably shouldn't play. I'm just going to do what the doctors tell me to do".

"And I had such a wonderful performance in my first Grand Slam back. I'm pleased because I felt in control in the match".
