Serena Williams last played on tour at the Australian Open 2021 where she suffered a Semi-final thumping at the hands of Naomi Osaka. A straight set loss, 3-6 4-6. Post that loss, which hurt Williams emotionally, she took a break from the tour. Her next tournament was supposed to be the Miami Open but she withdrew as she couldn’t recover in time from an oral surgery that she had undergone.
Patrick Mouratoglou, coach of Williams, has revealed that the tennis superstar will return to the WTA Tour at the Italian Open in Rome before playing the French Open. It may be worth mentioning here that Serena Williams won her last Grand Slam, number 23, at the Australian Open in 2017, and has been striving to win the record equaling 24th one for four years now.
