Serena Williams hopeful for a comeback in Wimbledon 2011
Currently ranked at number 25, the former world number one Serena Williams has been busy training with her trainer for the upcoming Wimbledon 2011. Serena has to undergo operations so as to get back in shape and defend her Wimbledon title.
SERENA WILLIAMS is contemplating a return to the Court next week in Eastbourne tournament at Aegon International followed by the Wimbledon 2011. Serena, who for more than an year was missing from action and nursing injuries has already started training with her trainer Mackie Shilstone. As per the latest WTA rankings, she has already made an exit out of the top ten players, and currently stands at number 25. Reports suggest that if her training works out well, she will look forward to defend her Wimbledon title.
The American player, who has not returned to the court since last July will have to undergo two foot operations and blood clot in her lungs. She will also undergo treatment for hematoma. "I am so excited to be healthy enough to compete again," Serena said in a statement released by her agent. "These past 12 months have been extremely tough and character building. I have so much to be grateful for. I'm thankful to my family, friends, and fans for all of their support. Serena's back!"
Serena Williams was ranked No. 1 seed after her Wimbledon win last year. Her current ranking is 25. All England Club does not conduct its draw according to rankings for Wimbledon, unlike other major tournaments. So, she could get a better seed than her ranking. Her sister Venus Williams, who also has not played since the Australian Open 2011, was also scheduled to play in Eastbourne.
