Serena Williams Withdraws From Rome 2012 With Back Injury

Serena Williams and Li Na

The highly anticipated semifinal between Serena Williams and Li Na at Rome 2012 will not take place as Serena Williams has withdrawn from the tournament with a lower back injury. While disappointing for Serena and the fans, this should not affect her for Roland Garros. In fact, her withdrawal is to give her back more time to rest prior to Paris. This is the second time Li Na has benefited from a withdrawal as she faced Dominika Cibulkova instead of potentially Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals due to Vika withdrawing. Li Na now gets a walkover into the final to face the winner of Maria Sharapova vs Angelique Kerber.
