Tennis Ace Williams Re-injures Foot

Subscribe Common

Rapper COMMON will be playing the dutiful boyfriend to SERENA WILLIAMS this winter - the tennis ace has injured her foot again, ruling her out of the sport for the rest of the year (10).
Williams hurt her foot in July (10) and underwent surgery to treat the problem, reportedly caused after stepping on broken glass at a restaurant in Munich, Germany.
She recently returned to training to prepare for this week's (begs11Oct10) Women's Tennis Association Tour in Austria, where she was expected to make her sporting comeback, but she has suffered further injury to her foot and will now miss out on the tournaments for the remainder of 2010.
In a post on her blog on Sunday (10Oct10), she wrote, "I have been training for many weeks to get back to playing tennis as quickly possible since my foot surgery in mid-July.
"Yesterday I learned that I had tried too hard, and did too much too soon. After practising yesterday morning I felt discomfort in my foot and tests by my doctor revealed that I had unfortunately re-strained it, as a result of over training.
"I am likely out for the year now... I feel completely heartbroken, and devastated, but knowing I will never be given more than I can handle I plan on coming back stronger and better."
Common and Williams split in April (10) after a two-year romance, but reunited over the summer and enjoyed a romantic beach break in Miami, Florida earlier this month (Oct10).
