Serena Williams has hinted that she could make a comeback at Wimbledon this year. The American has been out of action since last year's Championships due to a leg injury.
Williams recently attended a Bitcoin conference in Miami along with NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Aaron Rodgers. In an Instagram post, the 40-year-old revealed she had discussed her comeback with Rodgers.
"Alright so I am backstage at the Bitcoin conference in Miami with Aaron Rodgers here and we've been talking about my comeback, and he's been hyping me up, getting me ready for Wimbledon," Serena Williams said.
At this point, Rodgers looked a little surprised and asked her about a potential comeback at the US Open. Williams then hinted that she would have to play at the All England Club first.
"Wimbledon's before the US Open, I have to play Wimbledon first. Exciting," she added.
Serena Williams' last match was at Wimbledon in 2021
Serena Williams' last bit of action on the tennis court came at Wimbledon last year. The American was forced to retire midway through the first set of her opening-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich after sustatining a leg injury.
Sasnovich went on to reach the third round, where she lost to former champion Angelique Kerber.
Meanwhile, Williams' prolonged absence from the WTA tour has resulted in her ranking dropping to 246th. The American is still chasing a record-equaling 24th Grand Slam title and Wimbledon is arguably her best shot at achieving the feat.
She has the Wimbledon singles title on seven occasions, the last of which came in 2016 with a victory over Angelique Kerber.
Williams also reached the final in 2018 and 2019, but ended up losing to Kerber and Simona Halep respectively.
