The news of Serena Williams’ surprise comeback to singles action at Wimbledon, where she has won 23 Grand Slam titles, dominated pre-tournament headlines for days.
As soon as the news of Serena Williams’ sister Venus being observed working on her doubles talents broke, the focus shifted to the former world number one and seven-time grand slam champion.
Could the All England Club be receiving a blessing from the heavens? Who would have thought both of the Williams sisters would return to Wimbledon in the same year? What about in the year 2022? As a matter of fact?
“It was a last-minute decision.” Venus told the press she was “inspired by Serena Williams.” As I said, it was fantastic.” So many people helped me out today, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
After being knocked out in the first round by Harmony Tan, Serena’s sister Venus seemed to be just getting started on her comeback. On Court No. 1.

What’s up, Venus? At the conclusion, I could tell you were taking it all in. After a long absence, how does it feel to be back on the great stage again? Not to mention how short notice you gave us. Is this your first time here? In the beginning, we caught a glimpse of you on the practice court.
It was just a spontaneous decision on my part. When I first saw the grass, I was overjoyed (smiling)… This year, I attended the French Open, which is a magnificent event, but my heart wasn’t in the same place.

I didn’t have anything set in stone. So I had to ask [Jamie] at the last minute. I know he’s busy because he and his wife recently had a child. In all likelihood, I had no idea I’d end up in this position at the last minute…
That’s all I can say: wow. I just competed in a match and came out victorious. That’s not how I play at all. As a rule, I assume victory. We hoped to win the competition.
Venus Williams Aces Wimbledon Comeback
As I sat there at the conclusion, it seemed as if it were genuine. The truth is, I was moved to tears.
Despite her “last-minute” choice, the five-time singles winner and six-time women’s doubles champion is not in town to “have a good time” or “go for a stroll.” The prize will be Venus’s to keep.
After winning the Australian Open and the French Open in 1998 with Justin Gimelstob, Wimbledon mixed doubles remains one of her few remaining trophies. In 2006, she and Bob Bryan made it to the Wimbledon mixed doubles final, but she hasn’t been back since.
