Angelique Kerber happy for the return of Serena Williams

Former world number 1 Angelique Kerber said she was delighted to see Serena Williams compete at Wimbledon 2022, and she added that she is eager to see where the American will play next. The American played her first singles match in 12 months on Tuesday.

Unfortunately for Williams and all her fans, she suffered a narrow defeat: Harmony Tan overtook the American 7-5 1-6 7-6 (7): "Hats off for her return," said the German tennis player. She then added: "This shows that she is a champion and that she is still doing everything to play on Central.

I can't wait to know where and when we will see her again."

Serena Williams could also play the US Open

She was the most anticipated tennis player at Wimbledon and, as she has already shown in the past, this time Serena Williams also fought to the end.

She hadn't played for a long time, she had even left the WTA rankings but the American champion was one step away from success, she saw a match point fade and collapsed in the decisive tiebreak against the French Harmony Tan, number 115 in the world rankings.

Serena then spoke at the press conference, stating that she could return to play at Wimbledon and made an appointment at the US Open 2022. Here are some of her statements: "It was a very hard defeat. I had the chance to win the first set, but I couldn't.

It was a particular match with an important rival. A constant fight and I must say that I felt better than last year, I was on the court fighting until the end and trying to give everything I could. I am not angry about a defeat and this is already a victory for me, perhaps the greatest of all.

Besides, I haven't broken any rackets." Serena Williams who, at the end of the game lost against Tan, became the protagonist of a moving greeting to the public who rushed to the Central, who treated her like a true queen.

The American was visibly excited and raised her hand to the sky to thank the fans present and for all the support received. Predictable standing ovation for the 40-year-old before leaving the London grass. Now there will be plenty of room for reflections and deciding on your future as a professional player, also evaluating the two outings, the other in the doubles at Eastbourne.
