Since then, her fans have anticipated her return to the tennis surface. There was a lot of excitement for her coming back to the Wimbledon, but the fans were disappointed after her name did not appear on the player list. Serena’s name did not appear on the player’s list due to her ranking being low.

Serena Williams teases her comeback with her latest Instagram Post
There was a cloud of doubt over Serena’s participation in the Wimbledon, however, that has now been cleared by her latest Instagram post. Her post on Instagram comprised of a photo with her trainers and ankle braces on a grass surface with her tennis bag in the background.

Serena has not competed in a tour game since the first round match of Wimbledon last year which was against Aliaksandra Sasnovich after she slipped on the grass and had to retire forcefully due to an injury caused in the fall.
Her ranking plummeted to 1208 and because of this, she cannot directly participate in the Wimbledon without getting a wildcard entry which she most definitely will get. Fans would surely be anticipating witnessing the GOAT back on the grass court at Wimbledon.
A lot of them would also be looking forward to the potential clash of Iga Swiatek who has been dominating tennis since the beginning of the year fighting it out against one of the veterans and the most decorated player of the sport, Serena Williams.
