Serena pulls out of Cincinnati Masters with back injury

Serena pulls out of Cincinnati Masters with back injury

Serena Williams withdrew from the Western & Southern Open ahead of her opening match due to the back injury she suffered in Toronto. "I've had many, many tough matches", said Andreescu, who opened the week with an emotional three-set win over compatriot Eugenie Bouchard and played three more three-setters.

Andreescu had been on the court more than any other player at this year's Rogers Cup at 10 hours 54 minutes heading into Sunday's final.

"She expects to win any match, she is no matter the moment".

Williams's retirement was the last in a string of high-profile injuries at this year's Rogers Cup. "Being able to deal with all the pressure and all the expectations from everyone, I'm just real proud with how I dealt with everything". She withdrew from this week's Western & Southern Open at Cincinnati to give herself time to recover after dealing with shoulder and groin injuries this year.

For Andreescu, yesterday's events were a bittersweet achievement as she became the first Canadian to win the title since Faye Urban in 1969. "I didn't want to pay attention to that. I tried to just block it out and do the best I can".

OnePlus TV name and logo officially confirmed
Alongside revealing the name of its first smart TV, the company has released the logo that will be associated with the device. OnePlus phones run OxygenOS and they're the best-optimised phones you can purchase in the market right now.

"But unfortunately my back is still not right".

"Come on!" Andreescu would roar whenever she closed out a game with a critical hold or momentum-swinging break. She had only played one match in 134 days prior to her Toronto comeback.

Presuming some R&R does the trick, there is no reason to doubt Andreescu has what it takes to go where two Canadians, Bouchard and ace-master Milos Raonic, have gone before her: To the final of a Grand Slam. Although Andreescu argued with the umpire on the next point when a shot was out, she still returned the shot and got a point to make it 6-4 on the tiebreak.

After kissing the hard court Andreescu lay on her back, crying and covering her face.

"What I've been through the past two months has not been easy", Andreescu said.
