Serena Williams Withdraws From The 2018 Rogers Cup

Serena Williams has withdrawn from the Rogers Cup which begins next week.

Williams only returned from the birth of her first child this year but she impressed and reached the final of Wimbledon 2018.

However, the former World no.1 suffered the biggest defeat of her career losing 6-0, 6-1 to British No.1 Johanna Konta in San Jose on Wednesday.

Williams now feels she needs longer time to recover in the wake of her positive campaign at the All England Club.

The 23-time Grandslam winner revealed she won't partake in the Rogers Cup for "personal reasons".

"We are disappointed Serena will not be joining us," said tournament director Eugene Lapierre.

"Fans were very much looking forward to seeing her in action.

"Beyond the disappointment, the tournament as a whole remains a high-level competition.

"The entire top 10 is here, along with 22 of the top 25. There are exciting matches in store from the outset."

Meanwhile, Roger Federer is the only top player in the men's and women's draw absent from the Rogers Cup.
