via The New York Times:
Serena Williams will not play in the United States Open because of a lingering foot injury.
Williams, the top-ranked women’s player in the world and a three-time champion at the Open, called the withdrawal “one of the most devastating moments of my career.”
It will be the first time in the 35-year history of the computerized rankings that the No. 1 player will miss the Open, according to the Women’s Tennis Association.
Williams, 28, sliced her right foot on a piece of broken glass at a restaurant in Munich last month, a few days after winning her fourth Wimbledon singles title. She had surgery in mid-July and has not played since.
