Serena Williams will compete at Wimbledon this year

Newsman: Serena Williams is returning to Wimbledon this month as one of the wild-card picks for the women’s singles portion of the tennis tournament. The Grand Slam tournament begins on June 27, and it will mark the first time since last year’s event that Williams will compete professionally.

The announcement came on Tuesday from the All England Club, and Williams followed up with a post on her Instagram account that said, “SW and SW19. It’s a date. 2022 See you there.” (SW19 is a reference to Wimbledon; the All England Club’s postal code is SW19.)

The seven-time Wimbledon champion exited the 2021 tournament during her first set in the first round after sustaining an injury to her right leg on the slippery grass court.

many fans have been left wondering if this was it for Williams and if a retirement announcement was coming since, especially after she parted ways with her longtime coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who then started working with Romania’s Simona Halep.

, many fans are watching to see whether the Williams returns to the court can win her 24th Grand Slam singles title and tie the record that Australia’s Margaret Court has held since the 1970s.
