Serena Williams back on the court – tennis star celebrates comeback in doubles in Eastbourne after almost a year break

After 1:34 hours, the 23-time Grand Slam winner Williams and Jabeur prevailed 2: 6, 6: 3 and finally in the champions tiebreak with 13:11. Williams, in a brightly colored long-sleeved outfit, was highly motivated and very emotional about the matter.

Williams will compete at Wimbledon next week via wildcard. There she had played her last match for almost a year on July 29, 2021 in her first round task against Aljaksandra Sasnowitsch (Belarus). Her last doubles match on the tour was more than two years ago – it was the lost final in Auckland in January 2020.

A tear in the hamstrings had forced Williams into a month-long hiatus. In April, she hinted at her comeback at Wimbledon in exchange with football star Aaron Rodgers. She has won the tournament in south-west London seven times, most recently in 2016.
