After a year of inactivity, Serena Williams, 40, received an invitation for the English Grand Slam.
We already know one of the highlights of the next edition of Wimbledon (June 27 – July 10). This Tuesday, the suspense will have been short-lived between Serena Williams’ Instagram post – “SW and SW19 (the postcode for Wimbledon). It’s a date. 2022 See you there. Let’s Go” – with the image of two feet with strapped ankles, shod in Nikes, themselves placed on a sun-drenched lawn and the confirmation by the organizers of Wimbledon that the 40-year-old American received a wild card for the main draw of the AllEngland.
A year after her last match on the tour with a 3-3 abandonment in the first set of her first round of Wimbledon against Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich, following a fall which caused a leg injury, the seven-time winner (2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2016) of the English Major will make its return. In what physical form? Nobody really knows since the one who is currently ranked 1,208th in the world has disappeared from the sports radar for many months suggesting a well-deserved retirement. To have news of the native of Michigan, it was necessary to turn to social networks where we found photos of Serena at home with her daughter, at fashion shows or even recently at the F1 Grand Prix in Miami.
