Serena Williams is all set to return to action as the 23-time Grand Slam Winner has announced her comeback to Wimbledon 2022. Williams announced the news in an Instagram post. “SW and SW19. It’s a date. 2022 See you there. Let’s Go,” said Serena in an Instagram post. Although Serena’s name was not on the women’s singles entry list after her ranking dropped too low to compete, a wildcard entry is still a possibility.

Notably, Serena Williams will be making a comeback to the international level after a 12-months of absence. She last played at Wimbledon 2021 where she suffered a first-round exit at the grass-court Slam with an injury. She then ruled herself out of the US Open with a leg injury. The 40-year-old also missed the subsequent Australian Open and the French Open. However, with Williams all set to make a comeback, she will have her eyes set on the record 24th Grand Slam.

Williams had already left a hint!

Although Serena Williams announced the big decision a few weeks before the tournament commences, she left a hint way back in April. In a video shared by Williams in April on her Instagram story, she was seen discussing her comeback with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “We’ve been talking about my comeback,” had said Williams. “He’s been hyping me up and getting me ready for Wimbledon,” she had added.

When Rodgers asked, “What about U.S. Open?” Serena Williams responded, “Wimbledon’s before the U.S. Open, I gotta play Wimbledon first.” Notably, Serena Williams will be vying for her eighth Wimbledon title having won the major in 2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015, and 2016.

Also, Serena Williams last won a Grand Salm in 2017 when she clinched the Australian Open title. She is also one Grand Slam shy of Margaret Court for the most women’s singles Slams of all time (24). However, the 40-year-old will miss her coach Patrick Mouraotglou who is currently involved with Simona Halep.
