In a extremely bizarre scene at Wimbledon today, Serena Williams appeared ill and disoriented as she could barely hold the ball during the first round of her doubles match. Williams — who lost in singles Saturday — was forced to pull out of the doubles match with sister Venus after only three games that were painful to watch.

Serena was checked by the medical staff before the match against Kristina Barrois and Stefanie Voegele began. She appeared to be crying and very disoriented. On the court, it was obvious that she was having trouble seeing, and even gripping the ball. As she served in the third game, Serena was hitting fault after fault that bounced before even hitting the net.

After serving another double-fault to trail 3-0, Serena and Venus walked to the sidelines and the chair umpire announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Miss Williams has to retire.”

According to the referee’s office, Serena is suffering a from a “viral illness” but is it more than that?

According to USA Today Sports, Serena’s half sister Isha Price said Serena had been “sad” and “emotional” since her loss three days and hadn’t been eating much.

ESPN analyst Pam Shriver said she wondered: “Is this a drama? Is this an act? If you’re not well, you need to get help.”

So was Serena just overwhelmed? Was she physically ill (a viral illness as mentioned) or just depressed from the loss?

Whatever the case, we wish her well.
