Serena will take the rest of the year off, but hopes to return to the courts in 2018.
Did Venus Williams accidentally announce that her pregnant sister Serena is expecting a girl? The ITF wisely sought to remove Nastase and issued a statement following the match.
In contrasting fashion, defending champions Novak Djokovic and Garbine Muguruza both advanced to the third round at the French Open on Wednesday.
"She knows exactly what it's like out there, and she's had a lot of success here". She generates attention and wins more than her share of trophies - the Australian Open championship in January, while she already was expecting, was her 23rd at a Slam. Kvitova's family members rarely attend her tournaments, but this was different - "special" was the word she, and others, kept using.
Kerber, who only had a personal best record of a last 16 in this clay season, failed to withstand the strong forehand and backhand attacks from her opponent as she lost the first set 6-2 in 38 minutes.
Despite clay being Venus' least favourite surface, he takes confidence from the fact he won an ATP doubles title in Estoril, Portugal together with Harrison at the start of the clay court swing. "I've been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped", she confessed.
Venus has admitted that she finds it weird that she will not be playing with her sister this year.

He took the attitude that, "I just find ways to get into the lane, to get in transition, to back off and shoot the jumper". Can you imagine? LeBron was looking for the demonstrative, we-are-back play, right there, and he muffed it. "No blame.
Still mourning the recent death of his father, a tennis coach who helped Johnson learn the game back home in California, the 25th-seeded American didn't allow the jumble of feelings show outwardly.
"I feel great about the win". I can't wait for you to join the players box next year.
The next step for Venus was to balance nutritional food that treated her disease with food she enjoyed eating.
Nara actually broke Williams in the first part of the match, but the American quickly regained control. If you're eating a plant-based diet or a mixture of one, make sure you're eating something you like. "I don't know yet, that's the problem ..."
Williams never appeared extended on the Philippe Chatrier court, but she nevertheless delivered a display of exquisite shot-making to a crowd denied a real contest. Instead of sitting courtside during changeovers in a French Open match, she was in the stands, happy to watch her sister play as she awaits the birth of her first child in September.
