LOS ANGELES (AFP) – US superstar Serena Williams has withdrawn from the elite WTA Finals in Singapore, saying she’s still working to recover from the shoulder troubles that hindered her in 2016.
The WTA announced Williams’ withdrawal from the event that starts on October 23 on their Twitter feed, posting a video of Williams herself explaining the decision.
“Hey everyone in Singapore,’’ Williams said. “I’m really, really bummed that I won’t be able to come compete this year. ‘It’s been a really tough year for me.”
