Don’t call it a comeback because it’s Serena Williams we’re talking about! In preparation for Wimbledon, the decorated tennis champion added two more wins to her long list of victories.
On Tuesday, Williams and her partner Ons Jabeur triumphed over Sara Sorribes Tormo and Marie Bouzková, 2-6, 6-3, 13-11, at Eastbourne, Forbes reports. Together, Williams and Jabeur advanced to Wednesday’s quarterfinals against Shuko Aoyama and Chan Hao-ching.
“Oh my God, it was so fun to play with Ons,” Williams said at Eastbourne.
“It was great; we had a lot of fun. Our opponents played amazing; we were just trying to stay in there after the first set.”
It was a big match for Williams ahead of the start of Wimbledon next week. The 23 Grand Slam title holder hasn’t competed since Wimbledon 2021, where she suffered a leg injury that kept her out the rest of the year.
Wait for it…
