Following up on news that Serena's foot injury will require her to miss all of the lead up tournaments to the USO, now comes news that she's possibly, maybe, there's a chance, who knows, questionable for the USO itself. She had her foot surgery this week and is recovering.
It's still unclear why the injury was so extensive that she needed surgery, and why she's now projecting the surgery could keep her out of a tournament that is two months away. She cut her foot on some broken glass after Wimbledon and played with the foot injury at that exo in Belgium. According to her WTT team, she had a cut on her foot and needed stitches. So did she get the stitches before Belgium? Is she just getting them now? I'm so confused. I'm sure she's hurt and she'll need to stay off that foot for a bit, but "stitches" ain't "surgery".
Personally, I'll believe Serena's out of the USO when she fails to show up for her first round match and the umpire calls a forfeit. Until then, I'm not buying the crazy she's selling.
