Williams, who hopes to chase a record-equalling 24th career grand slam title at the US Open, suddenly sat crying in her chair before deciding to retire 19 minutes into the match with a back spasms.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t do it today. I tried but I just couldn’t do it,” a tearful Williams, who struggled to get the words out, told the crowd. “It’s been a tough year but we’ll keep going.”
