Venus Williams is one of the best grasscourt players. The 42-year-old has got five out of her seven Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon. Since last year’s Wimbledon, she has played only one match, way back, just before last year’s US Open.

Just like her sister Serena, Venus has also been out of action for a long time. However, Serena Williams announced her return earlier this month and is all set to play her first-round match at Wimbledon today. While Venus hinted at taking her time to come back, fans were speculating a doubles return for the 42-year-old. Notably, fans spotted Venus practicing at the Wimbledon 2022.
