Serena Williams, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, will return to the grass courts of SW19 later this month after receiving a wild card entrance to probably the most famous tennis tournament on the planet.

According to a Wimbledon statement on Tuesday, Williams will compete in the ladies’ singles.

“SW and SW19,” Williams said on Instagram on Tuesday, hinting at the much-anticipated news. “It’s a date, so let’s get this party started. We’ll meet again in 2022.” SW19 is a postcode district in Southwest London that includes the boroughs of Wimbledon and others.

She was photographed on a grass court wearing white sneakers in a social media image.

Williams hasn’t competed since retiring in the first round of Wimbledon last year due to injuries.

Williams, a 23-time major champion, last competed in the Wimbledon final in 2019, losing to Simona Halep, who is currently coached by Williams’ former coach, Patrick Mouratoglou.

According to the tournament, Williams will initially return to the court in Eastbourne next week for the LTA’s Rothesay International, where she will compete in the doubles event partnering Tunisia’s world No. 4 Ons Jabeur, in what will be her first tournament appearance in nearly a year.

Serena Williams, widely regarded as the greatest female tennis player of all time, says she still wants to break Margaret Court’s 24 grand slam titles record.

Following the advice of her medical staff, Williams was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open in January, stating in December that she wasn’t “physically ready to compete.

The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club is hosting Wimbledon from June 27 to July 10.
