Carillo: Beer bottle caused Serena's foot injury
Speaking during CBS' broadcast of the New Haven final, Mary Carillo said that Serena Williams' foot injury was caused by a beer bottle falling on her foot at a bar in Munich. Some patrons became rowdy during a World Cup match happening at the time, said Carillo.
Williams took part in an exhibition against Kim Clijsters after the incident but has not played since. She appeared with a plaster on the top of her foot in subsequent days and has been wearing a walking boot since undergoing surgery for the injury.
