Serena Williams made her comeback on Wimbledon’s Center Court. After a one-year hiatus following her retirement from the All England Club’s first round match due to injury, the American tennis star has decided to return to the courts.
Ons Jabeur, a Tunisian doubles partner, withdrew from the Eastbourne tournament a year later, preventing her from making her return as a singles player until the following year.
In the first round of Wimbledon, where she has won seven times in her career, the twenty-three-time Grand Slam champion was beaten by Tan, a French player.
Despite a close 6-1 victory in the second set, the tiebreak of the third set proved deadly to her premature exit. Serena Williams appears to be eager to return to the tennis courts, this time on her own home courts, when the grass season ends.
Return of Serena Williams
Serena Williams is returning to a surface near and dear to her heart to get over the disappointment of Wimbledon: she is on the entry list for the WTA 1000 in Toronto. So the season on cement gets underway with the Canadian event, which the US woman has won three times in her career.
This means that the youngest Williams sister will likely travel to Canada for the Rogers Cup in order to prepare for her home tournaments, the Cincinnati Masters and, of course, the US Open, which are both coming up soon.
There is also a full Top 10 of the WTA rankings available, starting with Iga Swiatek, who is currently the leader in the 1000-title club. Camila Giorgi, the current champion, is also on the list of contenders, and she intends to defend her title against her opponents.
