Serena Williams Drops Out Of Wimbledon Doubles After Suffering ‘Viral Illness’

LONDON (CBS Tampa) – Serena Williams withdrew from her doubles match at Wimbledon due to a “viral illness.”

Serena, along with her sister and partner Venus, tried to play through her illness but she was unable to compose herself after double-faulting on a serve.

Pam Shriver from ESPN described Serena as “having a breakdown both physically and emotionally…This is not an illness. It’s almost like she’s taken something that makes her feel dizzy, disoriented and she cannot reach up and strike the ball.”

The Williams’ sisters walked off the court hand-in-hand after the third game, which they lost all three.
