Suffering Back Spasms, A Crying Serena Williams Drops Out Of Rogers Cup Final

Business Insider reports tennis icon Serena Williams was forced to retire in the Rogers Cup final.

The veteran American played just four games before succumbing to back spasms. That left 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu to win the trophy in front of her hometown fans.

Williams broke down in tears when she withdrew from the match, and then again while making her post-match statements.

Andreescu wins 1,000 tour level ranking points and will reach a career-high rank of 14 on Monday.
