Serena reportedly out of 2011 Hopman Cup
According to Sportsnewsfirst.com.au, Serena has pulled out of the 2011 Hopman Cup.
Williams has reportedly told organizers that she will be unable to play in 2011's opening event because she has not properly recovered from a foot injury. Williams was recently seen leaving an NFL game on crutches with her right foot in a cast. The 2010 Australian Open champion, who was scheduled to play in Perth with John Isner, has not played since winning Wimbledon. Williams had been struggling with a foot injury since mysteriously cutting her foot in Munich back in July, which eventually required her to have surgery (18 stitches) to repair a damaged tendon, then an additional surgery because the injury had not healed properly.
