Exactly a year since she last played at Wimbledon, former women’s tennis world number one Serena Williams has hinted that she could make her long-awaited return at the same Grand Slam tournament in June.

Williams, 40, limped out of last year’s first-round match at Wimbledon in tears due to a leg injury.

She also skipped the Olympics in Tokyo and the US Open in 2021 due to the hamstring injury, as well as the Australian Open earlier this year.

On an Instagram story with NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Serena said: “We’ve been talking about my comeback and he’s been hyping me up and getting me ready for Wimbledon. Can’t wait!”

When Rodgers asked her about a potential comeback at the US Open, she added: “Wimbledon’s before the US Open, I’ve got to play Wimbledon first. Exciting!”

Wimbledon runs from June 27-July 10. Williams has won the grasscourt major seven times, with her last success coming in 2016.

Williams, who has been on the hunt for an elusive 24th major since winning her last Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open, has slipped to 246th in the women’s rankings.
