Serena Williams to compete at this year’s Wimbledon

BoomRadioNG | June 14, 2022

23-time Grand slam winner, Serena Williams is set to play later this month at Wimbledon after she was awarded a wild-card invitation.

The All England Club announced that Williams, 40, was among the six women given a wild-card spot in the singles draw.

Serena will also compete at the grass-court event at Eastbourne, which confirmed she has received a wild card in the doubles draw as well.

Serena hasn’t competed since injuring her right leg last year at Wimbledon where she lost her footing on the slick grass and then her right leg buckled, leading to just the second midmatch retirement at any Grand Slam tournament of her career and first since 1998.

She has won herself seven Wimbledon singles titles and her 23 Grand Slam titles are a record in the professional era as only one player in tennis history owns more: Margaret Court with 24.

She was also the Wimbledon runner-up in 2018 and 2019.
