Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Sofia Kenin on Tuesday withdrew from the upcoming Western & Southern Open.

They join Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic as high-profile stars who’ve withdrawn from the Cincinnati event, which starts Saturday.
Serena Williams has not competed at any tournament since retiring from her first-round match at Wimbledon after injuring her right leg on June 29.
Serena Williams said she hopes to be back on the court ”very soon.” Kenin, a 2019 semifinalist in Cincinnati, said she is rehabbing a foot injury and hoping to be able to play in the U.S. Open later this month.
