Wobbly, dizzy Serena Williams unable to hit ball over net retires from Wimbledon match

LONDON — A wobbly, dizzy Serena Williams pulled out of her Wimbledon doubles match with sister Venus after only three games on Tuesday.

Serena, who lost in singles on Saturday, was evaluated by medical staff before the match began. Sitting in her chair, Serena covered her face with her hands before the match started.

After multiple faults during the game, and with the game at love-40, chair umpire Kader Nouni walked over to speak to Serena. Nouni later announced to the crowd: “Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Miss Williams has to retire.”
