Serena Williams retired from her semifinal match against Jelena Jankovic at the Dubai Women's Open on Friday with a strained tendon in her right shoulder. The unseeded Jankovic was leading 6-0, 4-3, when Williams pulled out 59 minutes into the match. That put Jankovic into the final against top-seeded Lindsay Davenport, who struggled through an upset stomach to beat Patty Schnyder 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.
