Serena Williams gets wildcard for Wimbledon singles

Serena Williams has received a wildcard to take part in the ladies singles competition at Wimbledon later this month, tournament organizers said on Tuesday.

Williams, 40, has not played on the tour since a first round exit at Wimbledon last year due to an injury. She is a seven-times winner at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

“SW and SW19. It’s a date. 2022 See you there,” Williams, 40, wrote on Instagram and Facebook, referring to the postcode of the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) which hosts Wimbledon.

She also tagged Eastbourne International, a tune-up event to Wimbledon which gets underway this weekend.

The American, now ranked 1,208 in the world, has won Wimbledon seven times in her career.
