    Serena Williams has withdrawn from the French Open with a right arm injury and won’t play Maria Sharapova in their fourth-round match scheduled for Monday.

    Williams is 19-2 against No. 28 Sharapova, who advanced to the quarterfinals against No. 3 Garbine Muguruza via walkover.

    “I unfortunately have been having some issues with my pec muscle and unfortunately it’s been getting worse to the point where right now I can’t actually serve,” Williams said of the first withdrawal in the middle of a Grand Slam in her career. “It’s kind of hard to play when I can’t physically serve”

    She added: “I’m beyond disappointed. I gave up so much, from the time with my daughter and time with my family. I put everything on the court, all for this moment, so it’s really difficult to be in this situation.”

    Williams will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. Her status for Wimbledon (July 2-15) remains uncertain.

    Former Oklahoma point guard Trae Young has private workouts with the Knicks and Orlando Magic this week, a league source told ZAGSBLOG.

    Young is in New York Monday and Tuesday to meet and workout with the Knicks, and will then fly to Orlando Tuesday night, the source said.

    “On the way to NYC!” Young posted on his Instagram.

    In April, I reported on SNY.tv that Young was expected to work out for the Knicks.

    The Knicks own the No. 9 pick in the June 21 NBA Draft at Barclays Center, while ESPN.com currently projects Young to go No. 6 to Orlando.
