She had played her first singles match at the Citi Open after a gap of one year in her debut season where she was a wild-card entrant also but her return was short-lived as she got faced another disappointing straight sets exit.

A 7-time Grand Slam champion had participated in the 2022 Wimbledon Championship after a gap of eleven months in the doubles category. Her comeback was a piece of shocking news as she made a last-minute decision to play in the mixed doubles category with Jamie Murray. After winning the first round, she became confident about her decision to come back but soon lost in the next round.

Serena Williams also made her comeback after a gap of eleven months at the Wimbledon Championship but faced a shocking first-round exit. Post-Wimbledon, she also couldn’t have deep runs in the tournament following early exits at the Cincinnati Open as well as in the Canadian Open. Serena as well as Venus, are an undefeated pair in the doubles category at the Grand Slam finals. They both as a pair have won 14 women’s doubles major titles.
