Williams, playing in her first Grand Slam tournament since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia last September, said she had suffered a pectoral muscle injury in her impressive third-round victory against Germany's Julia Goerges.Williams had worked hard to get back in shape and, despite starting the tournament with a notional ranking of 451 and having played only four matches this year, she actually looked capable of the distance.With an 18-match winning streak against twice French champion Sharapova in her favor, Williams said she was "beyond disappointed" not to be able to play Monday.Five-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova, who despite her long run of defeats by Williams is still considered an archrival, wished her nemesis a "speedy recovery".Williams said she would have to wait to find out the extent of the injury before deciding whether she could play at Wimbledon.The Belgian believes Williams can still add to her Grand Slam collection, though.
