Serena back practicing

Serena Williams is back practicing after foot surgery that kept her out of the U.S. Open. The world's top-ranked women's player told The Associated Press that she hasn't decided when she'll return to competition, but she still plans to play for the United States in the Fed Cup final against Italy in November.

Williams cut her right foot on broken glass at a restaurant after winning Wimbledon. She was moving comfortably in tall black boots last Monday. "I'm obviously out of the (walking) boot, so I'm in a different boot, not that hideous boot," Williams said. She said she doesn't need to do anything special to protect the foot on the court other than a little extra tape.
