America’s 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams is now fully fit and ready to play tennis after a six-month break. She is preparing for the first ‘Top Seed Open’ near Lexington starting on Monday. The tournament has recently been included in a hard court tournament that will serve to prepare for the US Open in New York this month.
This will be the first WTA tournament in the US after March, with spectators unable to attend. It will feature Serena’s sister and seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Sloane Stephens and rising star Coco Gough. Serena, the ninth ranked player, played for America in the Fed Cup in February, this will be her first tournament since.
Serena has had blood clots and lung problems, so she has to be more vigilant about the Kovid-19. The 38-year-old player said, “I have to be very safe because it is okay to play tennis, but this is my life and this is my health
