Serena Explains Fed Cup Withdrawal

Posted by gauloises1 on November 3, 2009

Serena Williams has said that she was in no shape to play the Fed Cup final against Italy. She withdrew last week after having initially made herself available.

“It’s very difficult to play such a mental, mental week and then come back and play again right now I’m just struggling in every aspect of my body.” […]

“It’s a very difficult decision that I actually couldn’t make myself,” she said.

“I had to get input from my mum and my dad. People that are close to me had to just basically tell me what I needed to do as opposed to me making the decision.”


In Serena’s absence, the US team consists of Melanie Oudin, Alexa Glatch, Vania King (who replaced Serena) and Liezel Huber. So, you know, good luck to them.

Serena meanwhile continues to promote her book, in London this time:
