Serena Williams To Miss Tennis Tournament In Mason

Serena Williams needs surgery on her right foot after cutting it

on a broken glass at a restaurant.

The WTA Tour says Saturday the top-ranked women's player was

injured last week and will miss three tournaments leading to the

U.S. Open.

Williams offers no other details on the tour's website about

what happened at the restaurant but says she's "upset" at having

to skip the tournaments in Istanbul, Cincinnati and Montreal. The

Rogers Cup in Montreal begins Aug. 16. The U.S. Open starts Aug.


Williams won her fourth Wimbledon crown and 13th major title on

July 3. She already withdrew from the WorldTeam Tennis season.
