Shortly after claiming her fourth singles championship at the All England Club last year, Williams cut her foot on glass at a restaurant, an injury that led to two operations.

Question: I live in a town house with a tennis court. Children also live here and use the courts to run around in and underneath the nets, treating it as a playground. These children do not play tennis and they are not accompanied by adults. I complained to the board but was informed there is a new California law that prohibits discrimination against children. I am not discriminating against them, I just don't want damage done to the court or complex, whether caused by an adult or a child.
