Injuries and illness

Serena Williams has to have stitches because of a cut on the bottom of one of her feet, and--as a result--will miss the entire 2010 season of World Team Tennis. Williams plays for the Washington Kastles.

Peng Shuai, who has missed a lot of this season because of an extended illness, withdrew from Palermo today because of a sprained right ankle.

Finally, Tamira Paszek retired in her final qualifying round in Prague today because of heat illness.

I like Serena, but it pains me to watch her dancing in high heels on a cut foot during a pre-Espy party on July 12.

Serena did her part for the Kastles, though. She sold some advance tickets. And trust me, there was quite a bit of promotion on D.C. area media outlets the last month or so. I sense that that was pretty much her #1 duty from the start anyway. :)

I'll be interested in your reaction if she plays in Turkey on July 24.
