Serena Williams will not be opposing Magda Linnett in the WTA 500 Doubles semi-finals on Eastbourne grass. The American had to withdraw because her partner, Anas Jaber, reported the infection.

On Wednesday, Serena Williams and Ons Jabeur will likely report to the semi-finals of the Rothesay International in Eastbourne (more here), but they will not play for a place in the final. The Tunisian reported an injury to her right knee and decided to withdraw. Earlier, immediately after the victory in Berlin, she gave up singles. For Jaber, the priority is to play at Wimbledon, which begins on June 27.
Serena Williams did not enter the singles tournament in Eastbourne. With Jaber, she received a wild card to compete in doubles from the organizers. They both won two matches together. For the 40-year-old American, it was his first match on professional courts after a one-year hiatus. Now the younger Williams sisters will be performing on grass at the Grand Slam Wimbledon.
Magda Linette and Alexandra Krunic were waiting for the match against Williams and Jaber. After the competitors withdrew, the Polish-Serbian pair took a loss and qualified for the finals without playing. Our representative and her partner will have to wait for the opponents in the match for the title, because the fantastic quarter-final is scheduled for Thursday. The final will take place on Saturday.
