Ever since she injured her leg, there were speculations on when will she return to the Tour. With many believing that she could return for her home Slam, the 2021 US Open in New York, the Williams camp did not think the player was yet ready and keeping in mind her age, they believed that it was the right decision to not risk her comeback.

Going into the 2022 season, Serena would have missed 5 months of action but at the same time, she would have had enough rest. But the wait for official confirmation continues as she is yet to confirm her plans for the 2022 season and what tournaments will she play in order to prepare for the 2022 Australian Open for which she had earlier expressed a desire to play in.
