The French Open is missing another superstar.
At the press conference, Serena also talked about the reasons for his withdrawal and his current physical condition.
"I am struggling to walk now, which also shows that I should work hard to recover."
"I warmed up, but the time was short. I talked to the coach and asked him what he thought. We all thought it might be better not to try to play today."
"I think my physical condition is pretty good, but I can't find a better word-bad timing, bad luck in New York. It just happened, but my current physical condition is very good. "
The 39-year-old Serena has a poor record in this year's Grand Slam. She only reached the top 32 at the Australian Open, stopped the top four at the US Open, and only passed the first round at the French Open.
But even if it fails to catch up with Margaret Court's 24 championship record, Serena's achievements are unprecedented.
In the Open era, Serena's 23 Grand Slam titles are already the first in history. Of Court's 24 Grand Slam titles, 13 were won before the Open era, and only amateur players could participate in the Grand Slam.
