French Open: Serena Williams pulls out of Roland Garros due to injury
(CNN) -- Serena Williams' much anticipated clash with Maria Sharapova at the French Open didn't happen after all, the 36-year-old American pulling out because of a pectoral injury at the last minute. The 23-time grand slam winner had played herself into form through three rounds in her grand slam comeback, but she took to the main interview room Monday to announce her withdrawal just minutes before the match was about to begin on the Philippe-Chatrier court in Paris.
