Serena Williams Confirms Wimbledon
Return

Serena Williams will make her anticipated return to the tennis courts of SW19 later this
month, after playing doubles in Eastbourne with Ons Jabeur. Williams, 40, has been out
of the game since injuring her leg in the first round of Wimbledon last year, but is now
making a return after her recovery. In an Instagram story video, the 23-time grand slam
champion told viewers that she will be once again playing at one of the world’s most
prestigious competitions.

“We’ve been talking about my comeback, and he’s been hyping me up and getting me
ready for Wimbledon,” Williams, 40, told her followers

The champion has won Wimbledon seven different times, and most recently in 2016
when she defeated her fierce competitor, Angelique Kerber, in the final round of the
grass court tournament. Williams last reached the Wimbledon final in 2019, where she
lost to Simona Halep.

Last year at Wimbledon, Williams slipped on the court and suffered a leg injury during
her first round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovichat, making Williams withdraw from
the competition. She has not played competitively since an injury forced her to retire in a
first-round match at Wimbledon last year.

In an Instagram story video, Williams told Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron
Rodgers, that she will be making a return to the oldest tennis competition this summer.

“We’ve been talking about my comeback, and he’s been hyping me up and getting me
ready for Wimbledon,” Williams, 40, told her followers.

Known as one of the best female tennis players of all time, Williams says that she is still
aiming to beat Margaret Court’s record of winning 24 grand slams.

“I should have had it (the record), really, I’ve had many opportunities to have it. But I’m
not giving up.”
