Williams said:

“I’m very disappointed I’m not able to compete in the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, as I was really looking forward to defending my title,” Williams said in a statement to the tournament.

 “My shoulder inflammation continues to be a challenge, but I am anxious to return to the court as soon as possible.”

According to ESPN:

With her withdrawal, Williams is now in danger of losing her No. 1 ranking, which she has owned for 183 consecutive weeks, second all time to Steffi Graf’s record of 186.

If Rio silver medalist Angelique Kerber wins Cincinnati this week, she would unseat Williams atop the WTA Tour’s rankings. Earlier this season, Kerber won the Australian Open, her first major title, and at Wimbledon, she reached the final before running into Williams.

Assuming she is healthy enough to play, Williams will next appear at the US Open, where she has a chance to pass Graf’s Open era record of 23 Grand Slam titles.

Williams will be replaced in the Western & Southern draw by lucky loser Misaki Doi of Japan.
