Serena Williams’ Big Return to the Courts: A Look at Her Road Back to Tennis

A legend is about to return to the tennis court.

After a year full of personal highs that kept her off the court, Serena Williams, a clear GOAT in the world of tennis if there ever was one, is returning to the action for her first match in over a year with this weekend’s Fed Cup in Asheville, N.C. And while she won’t be making her grand return in any of Saturday’s singles matches, delaying her appearance on the court until Sunday, Feb. 11 when she partners with Lauren Davis to take on Lesley Kerkhove and Demi Schuurs of the Netherlands in a doubles match, the wait for fans will be nothing compared to the last time they saw Williams slay the women’s singles competition at the 2017 Australian Open over a year ago.
