Serena-Williams

The future of Serena Williams, in particular, is increasingly in doubt. The American champion played her last match at Wimbledon last year, when she was forced to retire 3-3 against Aliaksandra Sasnovich due to an injury to her right leg.

Serena Williams has denied rumors about her retirement, but she has nevertheless specified that she is ready to leave the world of tennis: “I am ready for this day, to be honest I have been for more than a decade. I think it is very important to always have a plan and I always have.

In life there is balance and some days are more difficult than others. It’s certainly harder now that I’m a mother and wife, because I want to be able to spend time with my family.” So Wimbledon 2022 continues to lose pieces, both on and off the court.

The ATP and the WTA have decided to punish the organizers of the London Slam, who have chosen to exclude Russian and Belarusian tennis players, and have determined that no points will be awarded. “The possibility for players of all nationalities to participate in tournaments, based on merit and without discrimination is fundamental for the Tour,” reads the harsh statement issued by the leaders of world tennis.

“The decision that Wimbledon made and which prevents Russians and Belarusians from playing in the United Kingdom undermines our principles and the integrity of the ATP. In the absence of a change in circumstances, it is with great regret and reluctance that we see no other option but to remove the ATP and WTA ranking points from Wimbledon for 2022.”

The 2022 Roland Garros is just across the corner and Serena Williams is about to miss the event she has received thrice in her career.

The mythical Williams has ruled the girls’s excursion for more than decades. But, she has been missing in motion for pretty a while now. The forty-year-vintage injured herself during her first-spherical conflict in opposition to Aliaksandra Sasnovich at Wimbledon final year and has been on the sidelines ever considering.

The long hiatus will render her unable to compete at Roland Garros, a tournament that has been special for her. She tasted Grand Slam glory across all disciplines for the first time at the French Open when she won the women’s doubles title alongside her elder sister Venus Williams in 1999.

In 2002, Serena Williams won the singles title at Roland Garros as well. It was the first of four consecutive Majors that she would go on to win, constituting the first of her two self-coined Serena Slams.

In 2010, she won her second doubles title at the tournament.

Williams then had to wait until 2013 to triumph in Paris for the second time in singles. She defeated defending champion and rival Maria Sharapova in straight sets to complete her Double Career Grand Slam.

Williams returned to the winner’s circle once again in 2015 after defeating Lucie Safarova in the final. It was her 20th Grand Slam title which helped her complete the Triple Career Grand Slam.

The French Open remains the only Grand Slam tournament where Williams hasn’t defended her title. She has won consecutive titles in the remaining three Majors.

Since returning to the tour in 2018 following the birth of her daughter Olympia, Williams’ best showing at the French Open has been a fourth-round appearance in 2018 and 2021.

Serena Williams to potentially make a comeback at this year’s Wimbledon
Serena Williams, meanwhile, has hinted at a potential comeback at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. At a bitcoin conference in April, she discussed her return to tennis with NFL star Aaron Rodgers.

“Alright so I am backstage at the Bitcoin conference in Miami with Aaron Rodgers here and we’ve been talking about my comeback, and he’s been hyping me up, getting me ready for Wimbledon,” she said.
When Rodgers questioned Williams about the US Open, she stated that since the grasscourt Major will be held before the Grand Slam in New York, that’s where she’ll compete first.

“Wimbledon’s before the US Open, I have to play Wimbledon first. Exciting,” she said.

Williams has gone on to become one of the most successful players at Wimbledon, winning seven titles in singles, six in doubles and one in mixed doubles. She also won her gold medals in singles and doubles at the 2012 Olympics on the lawns of the All England Club.

Williams is a huge favorite to win the title whenever she competes at Wimbledon, so her return would certainly add plenty of excitement.
