St. Petersburg, FL – Serena Williams is scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future after cutting her foot on broken glass in a restaurant.

The injury will cause the No. 1 ranked player in the world to miss events in Istanbul, Cincinnati, and Montreal, the latter of which is scheduled to commence two weeks before the U.S. Open.

"I'm so upset I won't be able to play in the upcoming events because of this foot surgery," Williams said. "I can't wait to get back on the courts."

Williams won her 13th Grand Slam and fourth Wimbledon title earlier this month.
