Serena Williams should play at Wimbledon and end a year of absence

The 40-year-old suffered a leg injury in the first round of the 2021 tournament. And rumors have swirled that she could retire from the game after her coach Patrick Mouratoglou started working with Simona Halep.

But the seven-time Wimbledon champion has hinted she will make her season debut when the tournament begins on June 27.

Writing on Instagram, she posted a picture of her feet wearing a Nike trainer on a grass pitch with the words: “SW and SW19. It’s a date. 2022 See you there. Let’s # renasarmy.

She also tagged Eastbourne in the post suggesting she could take part in Wimbledon’s warm-up event the previous week.

Williams is still in the hunt for a record 24th Grand Slam singles title and has reached the final twice since returning from the birth of her daughter – in 2018 and 2019 – only to lose twice.
