Serena Williams' highly anticipated comeback to the top level was halted by France's Harmony Tan in the first round of Wimbledon as the American lost 7-5, 1-6, 7-6(7) in three hours and 10 minutes. This was Williams' first singles match in 52 weeks, her last being the 2021 Wimbledon first-round, where she retired mid-match after injuring her leg.

speaking at a press conference after the match, the 23-time Grand Slam champion stated that there was "lots of motivation" to play at the US Open since that was where she won her first Major title in 1999.

"Maybe tomorrow I could have given more. Maybe a week ago I could have given more. But today was what I could do. At some point you have to be able to be OK with that. I mean, when you're at home, especially in New York, and the US Open, that being the first place I've won a Grand Slam in 1999, is something that's always super special. There's definitely lots of motivation to get better and to play at home," Williams said.
