Almost a year after her retirement in the 1st round at Wimbledon in 2021, American Serena Williams could return to competition soon, according to a message posted on her Instagram account.
Will the All England Club be the scene of Serena Williams’ return to competition? Soon to be 41 years old (next September 26), the American has in any case posted this Tuesday during the day an enigmatic message on her Instagram account. Indeed, during a post where we can see her on the grass with her strapped ankles, the native of Saginaw (Michigan) added in caption: “ SW and SW19 (the Wimbledon postcode). It’s a date. 2022, see you there. Thus, everything suggests that the player with 23 Grand Slam titles will be present in a few days for the third Major of the year, which begins on June 27. As a reminder, the one who currently points to 1,208th place in the WTA ranking and who was to disappear from the latter at the end of the next edition of Wimbledon has not played since June 29, 2021. That day, Williams had to give up in the first round in the London suburbs at 3-3 in the first set against Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich, because of a leg injury.
The Eastbourne tournament to test yourself?
At the time, the interested party was “heartbroken” and said that “(y)our love and (s)gratitude goes out to the fans and the team who make being on Center Court so special. Feeling the tremendous warmth and support from the crowd today when I walked on and off the court has been a huge delight to me. » For the time being, the American’s return to competition remains a little vague. because she did not play her protected classification at the appropriate time with the organizers of Wimbledon. As a result, the former world number one could benefit from a wild card to enter the main draw, unless she tries a soft comeback by entering doubles first. As implied on his Instagram post, Williams could also line up for the Eastbourne WTA 500 tournament next week… The person concerned should not delay to say more.
