Venus Williams has pulled out of this year’s Wimbledon tournament because of an ongoing lower back injury.

The Five-time Wimbledon champion suffered her earliest French Open exit in 12years when she crushed to a first round defeat to Urszula Radwanska at Roland Garros last month.

Venus who has won seven Grand Slam titles also pulled out of the doubles at Roland Garros before playing a match. Venus and her sister Serena were supposed to compete in that event for the first time since 2010 after receiving a wild card from the tournament but they withdrew with Venus saying that she was bothered by pain in her back.

Venus will need time off to let her back heal before she returns to the courts to Mylan World Team Tennis on July 8th in Washington DC.
