World Champion tennis player Serena William in a low moment, pulled out of tournament and forfeits hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Serena Williams according to AFP on Thursday pulled out of both the China Open and the year-ending WTA Finals, saying she needed "time to heal" -- despite missing hundreds of thousands of dollars in bonuses and prize money.

"I am taking a proactive step and withdrawing from tournaments in Beijing and Singapore to properly address my health and take the time to heal," she said in a statement.

But Williams, 34, who has not played since losing to Vinci, said it was her emotions rather than any physical injury which most troubled her after the dramatic choke at Flushing Meadows.

"It's no secret I've played injured most of the year -- whether it was my elbow, my knee, or, in the final moments after a certain match in Flushing, my heart," Williams said.
With the decision, Williams forfeits a US$450,000 bonus for playing all four premier mandatory tournaments, plus a cut of the $7 million prize money at the WTA Finals -- an event she has won five times.

Wish her quick recovery from her health or emotional related issues. She still remains a champion and an inspiration to many.
