Serena Williams broke down in the finals of the Roger Cup during the weekend. She was forced to retire from the match due to back injury which led 19 year old Bianca Andreescu winning the title. Williams was down 3-1 to Andreescu in the first set before calling a medical timeout. I was then the chair umpire that announced that Williams had to retire from the match.
“I’m sorry I couldnt’t do it today, I tried,” a tearful Williams told the crowd in Toronto. “But I just couldn’t do it. Thanks to Jehovah for letting letting me come out here. And Bianca, you are a great sportswoman. And thanks for my team. It’s been a tough year but we’ll keep going.”
