World number one Serena Williams is still not able to play tournaments as she continues to recover from her foot injury sustained at a restaurant. Serena was supposed to return for the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo, but it’s now official that that will not be the case. She hasn’t competed since winning Wimbledon in the beginning of July.
Scheduled to play the Toray Pan Pacific Open are Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva, French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, world No.2 Caroline Wozniacki and defending champion Maria Sharapova. (source: BBC, photo: brett marlow)
