Rome: American tennis player Serena Williams has withdrawn from the semi-final match of Rome Masters due to sore back.

She was to meet Chinese Li Na in the semi-final.


"I`ve been feeling a little pain this week and I have a huge schedule coming up," she was quoted as saying by a news agency.

However, the 30-year-old said she is fine and will be fully fit to participate in the French Open that starts later this month.

“I`m fine, I`ll be 100% for the French," she said.

Her withdrawal means that Li Na will be playing in the final for the title with either Maria Sharapova or Angelique Kerber.
