“SW (for Serena Williams, Ed) and SW 19 (the postcode of Wimbledon). It's a date ! See you there”, wrote, under a photo of her tennis shoes on the lawn, the former world No.1, 40 years old.

Her last match dates back to the first round of the 2021 edition where she had to give up due to a thigh injury.

She has since fallen to 1208th place in the world rankings and will therefore need one of the “wild cards” (invitation from the organizers) which are to be announced on Wednesday.

It is also not certain that she will line up in singles. She might prefer doubles, which she won six times with her sister, or even mixed doubles, which she had already tried in 2019 with Andy Murray.

On her publication, the youngest of the Williams sisters also refers to the Eastbourne tournament which is played the week before Wimbledon, without further details.

Serena Williams' last title in London dates back to 2016, but she reached the final in 2018 and 2019.
