Williams, who turns 40 next month, announced she had pulled out of the Grand Slam on Instagram.

“After careful consideration and following the advice of my doctors and medical team, I have decided to withdraw from the US Open to allow my body to heal completely from a torn hamstring,” she said.

“New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world and one of my favourite places to play – I’ll miss seeing the fans but will be cheering on from afar. Thank you for your continued love and support. I’ll see you soon.”
