Next week’s WTA hardcourt event on Tuesday lost the Williams sisters as Serena and Venus announced they would not play.

The decision will leave the pair without a match since Wimbledon with the US Open starting on August 30 in New York.

Organisers said that Serena, winner in 2014 and 2015, is carrying a leg injury while elder sibling Venus, did not give a reason.

Cincinnati serves as the last major tuneup prior to the Open, last major of the season.
