“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 will return to the WTA Tour in Eastbourne next week after almost a year out through injury. The 29-year-old American suffered a badly-cut foot after winning Wimbledon last year – standing on some broken glass in a German restaurant – and has not played since, undergoing two operations while also having treatment to remove a blood clot in her lung. She returned to training in April and is hoping an appearance at Eastbourne will provide at least some preparation as she attempts to defend her crown at SW19.

In a statement released by her agent to the New York Times, Williams said: “I am so excited to be healthy enough to compete again. “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!” Williams has won 13 Grand Slam singles titles, including four at Wimbledon.
