Bad news, twin and tennis lovers! Venus Williams has pulled out of Wimbledon!!

That's right, half of the Williams sisters has had to drop out of the Wimbledon Championships because she hurt her lower back. The injury is in addition to having the chronic autoimmune disease Sjogren's syndrome — which is hard enough to deal with. She's one tough woman, but she isn't stupid. We agree that it's a better idea to sit out than fight through!

Here's what she said about her decision:

"I am extremely disappointed as I have always loved The Championships, but I need to take time to let my back heal. Many thanks to my fans for the love and support and I will be seeing you very soon back on the courts."

This is the FIRST TIME since 1997 that she hasn't been there!

She's also won the Wimbledon women's singles title five times, and is still looking forward to competing plenty before next year's Championships come around!

Feel better soon, Venus!
