Tennis-Serena retires injured in Toronto final against Andreescu

TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Serena Williams’ first U.S. Open tune-up ended in stunning fashion as the American retired with injury while trailing Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu 2-1 in the Rogers Cup final on Sunday.

Williams, who hopes to chase a record-equalling 24th career Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open, seemed fine on court but suddenly sat crying in her chair before deciding to retire 19 minutes into the match with a back injury. (Reporting by Frank Pingue in Toronto Editing by Ian Chadband)
