World number one tennis star Serena Williams has opted against defending the WTA Finals title and decided to end her season early.

The 34-year-old’s last match was her shock loss to Italy’s Roberta Vinci in the semi-finals of the U.S. Open last month, which ended her bid to become the first women in 27 years to win all four grand slam titles in the same season.

The 21-times grand slam singles champion said she had been carrying injuries throughout the campaign and the loss to Vinci had taken its toll, adding she would not play again this year after also pulling out of next week’s China Open.

“This is a very difficult decision, but one ultimately made because of the love of the game.”
