Serena Williams 'Retires' From Wimbledon Doubles Match

by Wochit 0:42 mins

Serena Williams pulled out of her Wimbledon doubles match with sister Venus after only three games Tuesday. Serena, who lost in singles Saturday, was checked by medical staff before the doubles match even began. At love-40, chair umpire Kader Nouni took the unusual step of climbing down and walking over to speak to Serena. Serena and Venus walked to the sideline holding hands, and Nouni announced to the crowd: "Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Miss Williams has to retire." The Wimbleon referee's office later announced that Serena was suffering from a "viral illness."
