Serena Williams return after injury

Serena Williams will make her return from a year-long injury absence when she contests the Eastbourne tournament next week, signalling she should be fit to defend her Wimbledon title. A statement from her management released on Wednesday in the US said she will compete in the tournament on England's south coast which is one of the traditional grasscourt warm-up events for Wimbledon, which begins 20th June. Williams has not played on tour since winning her 13th Grand Slam singles title at the All England Club last July. "I am so excited to be healthy enough to compete again," Williams said in the statement. Shortly after her Wimbledon win last year, Williams cut her foot on glass at a restaurant in Germany. Williams is a four-time Wimbledon champion winning the event in 2002, 2003, 2009 and 2010 and over 2002 and 2003 she won the four Grand Slam titles sequentially to claim what she termed the 'Serena Slam'.
