Her ability to compete in next month’s US Open, scheduled for August 30th, may also be affected by this latest medical setback.
Williams was spotted in New York wearing bandages on the top of her right foot, while she attended the wedding of Carmelo Anthony, who plays for the Denver Nuggets. Sources indicate that the injury required stitches.
Williams has been recently experiencing bouts of injury. Shortly after winning the Australian Open, she was kept out of competition with a knee injury, from January to April. It is believed that the injury earlier this year helped caused her defeat in the French Open quarterfinals in June.
It was therefore a much appreciated victory for Williams when one month after, (July), she captured her 4th Wimbledon title and 13th Grand Slam, when she defeated 21st Seed, Russian Vera Zvonareva, 6-3,6-2, in only 66 minutes, in the Finals of the female competition at Wimbledon.
