Via @serenawilliams on Tuesday: “Look who I spotted on the court. Her first day back…” Yes, after a foot injury, surgery, another surgery, a bedzzled boot, blood clots, a hematoma and more surgery, Serena Williams is finally back on the practice courts! Besides that Belgian exhibition match, she hasn’t played any real tennis since winning Wimbledon last July.
So why not celebrate the occasion by wearing a hot pink catsuit that would make a Marvel Super-heroine neon green with envy? (Really, try to find a reason you killjoys!)
USA Today reports that she’s “expected” to be back on tour in time for next month’s French Open “if a tuneup tournament or two go all right.” (Rome? Strasbourg? Brussels? That would be one quick recovery.) As far as I know, Serena hasn’t made any promises or booked herself into any tournaments. Though a hot pink catsuit does bring “Oh la la” to mind.
At the very least, this is a nice development for the WTA tour after yesterday’s disappointing injury news from the Clijsters camp.
