As you surely know, Serena Williams was upset by 19-year-old American Sloane Stephens this morning in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, and exited the court complaining of back pain. Seems she also had another health concern: a bad wheel, which she injured earlier in the tournament.

Of course Williams, always gracious in defeat, had to let the world know that she had been playing hurt. And so the status of her swollen ankle was revealed, as she tweeted this photo. Yikes.

No photo of the racquet, Serena?

    Might need a few more steroids to help with that injury recovery… Apparently the testing is a few years behind the science ,just like in competitive bicycling…Lance might be able to shorten her recovery time…
