Serena Williams has withdrawn from the French Open due to a pectoral injury ahead of her eagerly-awaited fourth-round showdown with Maria Sharapova.

Williams revealed how she started to feel the problem during her 6-3 6-4 victory over Julia Goerges on Saturday, though she did play doubles alongside sister Venus on Sunday at Roland Garros.

The 23-time grand slam singles champion will remain in Paris to undergo further treatment and is unsure when she will be ready to make a return to action.
