WILLIAMS. Back to competition this Tuesday, June 28 at Wimbledon after being away from the field for more than a year, Serena Williams is opposed to the French Harmony Tan in the first round of the London Grand Slam.
Absent from the field for more than a year and her retirement in the first round of Wimbledon 2021 against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Serena Williams is making her comeback in a Grand Slam tournament this week in London. Opposed this Tuesday, June 28 to the French Harmony Tan in the first round, the former world number 1 subsequently has a rather open table in this Wimbledon 2022 and can, why not, claim a good career and a match against Iga Swiatek during the semi-finals.
Away from the field, the American treated a hamstring injury. During her absence, we mainly saw Serena Williams at extra-sporting events such as fashion shows or in Monaco to attend the Formula 1 Grand Prix. In a press conference before Wimbledon, the player with 23 Grand Slam titles is back on his absence: “Wimbledon was not easy last year. I felt like I was injured most of the year. Then I injured my thigh. I tried hard to play in New York, I gave everything I had, every day, to be ready or at least to try to be. But I ended up realizing that I couldn’t. So I put away my snowshoes while I heal myself.”
