Venus Williams speaks on sister Serena's return to action - "The boss is back in town"

Ever since 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams announced last week that she is making a comeback to competitive tennis, it has been the biggest news in the tennis world. Williams had confirmed her participation at Wimbledon as a wildcard and that she would play doubles at the Eastbourne International a week earlier.

Williams, whose name was missing from the entry list released by Wimbledon earlier this month, played her last match at the British Major in 2021. At 3-3 in the first set, she withdrew after pulling her hamstring. After 357 days, the American returned to the court on Tuesday in Eastbourne and teamed up with World No. 3 Ons Jabeur to record a 2-6 6-3 13-11 victory Sara Sorribes Tormo and Marie Bouzkova.

Upon her return, the fans could not hold back their emotions and showered their love on the iconic player. However, fans were not alone in welcoming Williams back. They were joined by players like Karolina Pliskova and Paula Badosa. Venus Williams, Serena's sister, shared a photo of the 23-time Major champion on social media and expressed joy at her return.

"The boss is back in town @serenawilliams," Venus Williams wrote.

Serena and Venus Williams have lifted the women's singles Wimbledon trophy seven and five times, respectively. The sisters also have a 14-0 win-loss record in Grand Slam doubles title matches.
