Serena Williams Out Of Wimbledon After Retiring Injured In First Round

#BREAKING American legend Serena Williams’s dreams of winning an eighth Wimbledon singles title and equalling Margaret Court’s Grand Slam record of 24 ended in tears when she slipped and had to have her left ankle examined, then called it quits.

The 39-year-old was clearly limping and called for her trainer before leaving the court for a medical evaluation.

When Williams returned, she held back tears while serving at the baseline, with the pain leaving her in no position to continue.
