Serena Williams vs. Harmony Tan live score, results, highlights from 2022 Wimbledon return

Sports

Serena Williams is back on grass. Nearly one year to the day when Williams was forced to retire from her first-round match at Wimbledon after tearing her hamstring, the seven-time champion is returning to the All England Club to take on France’s Harmony Tan.

Tan, 24, is one of France’s best young prospects. She is currently ranked just outside the top-100, but has just two main-draw wins at Grand Slam events and is playing Wimbledon for the first time. She’ll have her work cut out for her with Williams, perhaps the finest tennis player in history.

Williams is seeking her eighth title on the Wimbledon grass, a remarkable total. At 40 years old, Williams doesn’t have much more time at the top level. But, one way or another, the eyes of the tennis world will be drawn to her on Tuesday when she gets back on that iconic Wimbledon grass.

The Sporting News is tracking live updates from Williams and Tan’s first round match. Follow along below for updates and highlights from all of Tuesday’s action.

Serena Williams’ history at Wimbledon

Williams is one of the greatest players to ever pick up a racket and she has tended to prove as much at Wimbledon. Williams has hoisted the Venus Rosewater Dish seven times in her career, tied with Steffi Graf for the second-most all time among women’s players. Only Martina Navratilova has won the tournament more than Williams and Graf, capturing the trophy nine times.

Williams last won the tournament in 2016, defeating German Angelique Kerber in straight sets. It was her second straight Wimbledon title.
