"It's extremely disappointing", Williams said during a news conference at Roland Garros.
Williams' voice quivered as she said she can't serve because of a problem with her right pectoral muscle. "It's kind of hard to play when I can't physically serve", Williams said. She further said that she could not serve at all.
Last Tuesday, Serena returned to the tennis court for her first Grand Slam match since welcoming daughter, Alexis Olympia, in September.
Williams' appearance in Paris was her first at a major since winning the 2017 Australian Open, after which the 36-year-old took time out of the game to give birth to her first child.
Serena Williamswithdrew shortly before her highly-anticipated fourth-round clash with Maria Sharapova at Roland Garros on Monday, citing a right pectoral injury that prevented her from serving.
Williams had described Sharapova's book "Unstoppable", in which the Russian claimed the American hated her for beating her in the 2004 Wimbledon final and reducing her to "guttural sobs" as "100 percent hearsay".
She broke again at the start of the second set, and although this time Sharapova hit straight back Muguruza bulldozed her way through the rest of the set to secure her place in the semi-finals. The 14th seed, who reached the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships in February, ran out a comfortable 7-6, 6-4 victor and will take on American Sloane Stephens for a place in the semi-finals.
Maria Sharapova's coach says the Russian player was waiting at courtside, ready to go on, when they got the news that Serena Williams was pulling out of their fourth-round match at the French Open.

"I think there are a lot of good things like the way my body has handled the long matches that I have played, the back-to-backs".
The 2014 U.S. Open victor will now face another big server, Juan Martin del Potro, who won his own match of tall big servers, knocking out the only American left in the draw, John Isner, in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. She had experienced chest pains in the third-round singles victory against Julia Goerges on Saturday. Physically I'm doing great.
"I have given up so much to be here".
"I think my body will need a little bit of rest, but mentally I'm ready to go", said five-time major victor Sharapova. Williams is a seven-time Wimbledon singles champion.
"And I think we played many matches".
