London: American world number one Serena Williams will miss three tournaments in the build-up to the US Open due to surgery on her right foot, the WTA Tour said on Saturday.

The 28-year-old Australian Open and Wimbledon champion will miss events in Istanbul, Cincinnati and Montreal after cutting her foot on broken glass at a restaurant last week.

“I’m so upset I won’t be able to play in the upcoming events because of this foot surgery,” Williams told the WTA website. “Thank you for all of your support. I can’t wait to get back on the courts.”
The US Open begins at Flushing Meadows on August 30.
