Serena’s Return to Tennis Leaves Eastbourne Starstruck
Tennis icon, Serena Williams made a grand return to the game that has earned her fame and fortune at the Eastbourne Devonshire Park where she teamed up with Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur in the Eastbourne doubles and the pair won their opening match in an entertaining evening.
The game marks almost one year since her last competitive match and just weeks after many had predicted that the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion would never play competitive tennis again.
After this win, Serena looks forward to stepping into the court again next week to play in the singles at Wimbledon, where she has won seven of her major titles.
Serena, has, however, confessed that she “absolutely” had moments of doubt about whether she would ever play again.
“You know what, I’m literally taking it one day at a time,” she said.
“I really took my time with my hamstring injury so I’m just not making a ton of decisions after this.”
