Serena Williams gets wildcard to play at Wimbledon


After all, Serena Williams is going to play at Wimbledon this year. The All England Club announced via Twitter on Tuesday (14 June) that Williams has been awarded a wild-card entry for the singles. Williams has not competed anywhere since suffering an injury during the first set of her first round match at the All England Club a year ago. And her name did not figure in the women’s singles entry list released by the grass-court Grand Slam tournament earlier this month.

But Williams is among six women who qualified for Tuesday’s singles draw. Earlier in the day, Williams posted a photo of her white shoes, what appears to be a haystack and the message: “SW and SW19. It’s a date. 2022. See you there. Let’s go.” ” “SW” is of course its initials, and “SW19” is Wimbledon’s postal code.

The 40-year-old American has won seven of his Open era-record 23 major singles championships, most recently at Wimbledon in 2016.

Williams was runner-up there in 2018 and 2019 (the tournament was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic).

In 2021, Williams lost his leg on slick grass and then his right leg was bent, making only his second mid-match retirement in any Grand Slam tournament of his career and the first since 1998.
