Jabeur withdraws from doubles semifinal

Jabeur and Williams would face Magda Linette and Aleksandra Krunic in the semifinals

Serena Williams' comeback in doubles at the grass-court tournament at Eastbourne ended prematurely.

Due to a knee injury to Ons Jabeur, they were unable to play their semifinal.

"Jabeur/Williams have withdrawn from their semi-final due to an injury to Ons Jabeur's right knee," the English tennis federation wrote on its Twitter account.

Jabeur and Williams were due to face Magda Linette and Aleksandra Krunic in the semifinals after scoring two wins in the grass-court event on the south coast of England.

Williams reappeared this week on the courts after a year away from competitive tennis.
