Serena Williams: ‘Back spasms are incredibly painful’



Bianca Andreescu (top right), 19, became the first Canadian to win the Rogers Cup in 50 years when Serena Williams (left), 37, retired because of her injury on Sunday. Williams was comforted (bottom right) by her 19-year-old opponent as she broke down in tears and apologized after back spasms forced her to retire from the match. Andreescu was up 3-1 in the first set when Williams called for a medical timeout. Less than a minute later, the chair umpire announced that Williams was retiring from the match, handing Andreescu her second WTA Premier title of the season.

  1. most comments are from people who have never experienced back spasm. If you continue to move the spam travels. It can become debilitating….

  2. All those saying retire baffles me she's been to several finals even after giving birth thats not slowing down just needs more games

  3. I sympathise. I used to get them. So bad that I would see stars and end up on my knees. Turned out I was allergic to artificial sweetners.

  4. I don’t think she’s been at her full capacity since she had her baby. I think her body capacity for the level she was playing changed.

  5. You have been a champion among champions for quite some time! Take a rest!. What's the point you don't have to prove yourself anymore. Don't retire in Eternal pain like I will have to and other people I know have to. You will always be a champion!. Take a rest sister you deserve it. I really mean it. You are a true amazing champion. You have been an inspiration for Generations already. Peace.

  6. Well…as someone who has broken their back (T5-T6) and deals with chronic pain and back spasms, all I can say is retire and quit your bitching. 

    I'm not even 30, but I've had to look myself in the mirror and say 'You can't do that anymore'…You have to be honest with yourself and accept your physical abilities and disabilities. 

    Serena Williams needs to give it up and retire with what little grace she has left.

  7. StrongWoman. She'd kick my arse. Lol. We are just getN old and it suXazz. She has MANNNY accreditations. 1 of Greatest if not THEE GREATEST FEMALE TENNIS PLAYER EVER. Yall should chillaX about her. Imagine being at her level ..her greatness and then BLAMMO..YOUVE AGED!! This HASSSS TO SUK!!! I feel it would for me AND MANY. Its natural. Chill out folks. Let the gal be. 🇺🇸✌🌐

  8. Tennis is not that hard core of a sport for you to be getting back spasms, especially with the many expensive special treatments you get… there I said it!
    DA HELL OUTTA HERE WITH THAT!
    Excuses… excuses… Serena baby you washed up. Time to retire!

  9. Serena, so sorry to hear about your spasms! I know that they are very painful! You will heal and rest! Can't wait to see you back on the court! Be well my sister! Blessings…! 👍⭐👍

  10. Lies. She has poor sportsmanship. Cant even lose with pride. You lost worse than losing the way you handle things.
