Serena Williams had treatment for the Achilles problem during her US Open semi-final loss to Victoria Azarenka

Serena Williams has pulled out of next week’s Italian Open with an Achilles injury that troubled her in Thursday’s US Open semi-final defeat.

She took a medical timeout early in the third set to have her left ankle re-taped because of the Achilles issue.

The Rome event, starting on Monday, is two weeks before the French Open.

Immediately after her US Open defeat Williams said she would play at the French Open, where she will get another chance to match Margaret Court’s Grand Slam record.

Other players to withdraw are 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu, world number one Ashleigh Barty and two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova.

Meanwhile, Austria’s Dominic Thiem and Germany’s Alexander Zverev – who will contest Sunday’s US Open men’s singles final – have also pulled out of the Italian event.
