"I'm going to stay here and see some of the doctors, see as many specialists as I can", said the 23-time Grand Slam title victor. I put everything on the court, you know? So I think that disappointment really, it stirred something up.
Williams, 36, has played only a handful of matches this year but the three-times French Open champion has looked so risky in her black bodysuit in Paris that she seems capable of defying conventional wisdom and reclaiming the title. She told reporters she was "beyond disappointed" she wouldn't be able to play her highly anticipated fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova.
If history is anything to go by, Williams is likely to win, but former men's champion Mats Wilander says this is Sharapova's best chance to get back on top.
But shortly before the two old warriors were due on court, the 23-times grand slam champion instead stepped into a news conference room to announce she was pulling out. "But also, I made a promise to myself and to my coach and to my team that if I'm not at least 60 percent or 50 percent, then I probably shouldn't play".
"I have been waiting about 14 years to ask you this question", Simons said.
The three-time champion chose to play doubles as well as singles because she knew she needed matches under her belt.
Williams said she would have to wait to find out the extent of the injury before deciding whether she can play at Wimbledon.
Williams leads the series over Sharapova 19-2.
Much has been made of the Williams-Sharapova rivalry through the years, despite the fact that Sharapova has only bested Williams twice in her tennis career.
