Venus Williams‘ return to competition is something Tracy Austin, a former world No. 1, is looking forward to since she believes the seven-time Grand Slam champion was given a favorable draw in Washington. Williams is scheduled to make her long-awaited comeback at the Citi Open in Washington. She hasn’t participated in a singles competition since August of last year.
In her Washington debut, Williams, who accepted a wildcard, was paired with a qualifier. “42 and I was interested to see how she drew. She’s going to be dangerous because she’s an unseeded player.
Who she received had a qualifier. I believe that’s a good draw for her to be able to get in, “According to Sportskeeda, Austin stated on Tennis Channel.
Washington will host Williams‘ debut.
At the age of 42, Williams will play on Washington’s hard courts for the very first time.
Williams has never participated in the Citi Open, but she is excited to go because she has only heard good things about the competition. Williams expressed her excitement about competing in the Citi Open for the first time this summer.
“I adore Washington, DC, and coming back to perform there before a crowd that has been so supportive of me is like coming home. Soon, I hope to return to the courts and compete in Washington, DC.
Williams participated in Wimbledon this past year, but just in the mixed doubles match. Williams didn’t initially intend to compete at Wimbledon, but when she got to The Championships, everything changed. Williams enquired about playing mixed doubles with Jamie Murray after arriving at Wimbledon.
When Murray agreed, Wimbledon officials gave them a wildcard. Williams and Murray made it to the round of 16 in their first game together. Williams is now prepared for her return to singles play.
