Venus Williams pulls out of WimbledonAfter 16 consecutive years of always showing up at Wimbledon, winning five titles along the way, Venus Williams pulled out of the grass-court Grand Slam tournament Tuesday, citing a lower back injury.
Williams, who turned 33 on Monday, never had missed Wimbledon since making her debut there in 1997, although she lost in the first round a year ago. She won the singles trophy - it happens to be called the Venus Rosewater Dish - in 2000-01, 2005 and 2007-08, to go with two more major championships at the U.S. Open in 2000-01.
