After her win, the 23-time Grand Slam winner admitted that during her 12-month hiatus, there were moments when she feared she might never come back.
“It’s doubles, I only play half court but I’ve been practicing a lot and it’s definitely good. You know what, I literally take it one day at a time,” Williams added. . “I really took my time with the hamstring injury so I just don’t make a lot of decisions after that.
“It was great there and so much fun to play with Ons, we had a lot of fun. Our opponents played amazingly and we were happy to stay there.”
Wimbledon organizers announced last week that Williams had received a wildcard to compete in the singles draw at the All England Club.
Williams is chasing Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles, with her most recent Grand Slam win coming at the 2017 Australian Open.
“I had to get it (the record), really, I had many opportunities to get it. But I don’t give up.”
