Venus Williams, 42, not done yet, confirms her comeback tournament

Venus Williams has accepted a main draw wildcard into 's-Hertogenbosch, the tournament announced. At the age of 42, Williams is set to debut on the grass courts of 's-Hertogenbosch. Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, suffered a hamstring injury in the first week of the 2023 season in Auckland.

Williams, who hasn't played any tournaments since, had been hinting in recent weeks that she was nearing a return. Now, Williams is confirmed for 's-Hertogenbosch, a tournament that is set to start on June 12th.

After competing in just four tournaments in 2022, Williams started her 2023 season in the very first week of the season.

In Auckland, Williams won her first-round match before suffering a hamstring injury during a three-set loss to Zhu Lin in the round-of-16. As a result of her injury, Williams had to return Tennis Australia the wildcard she was granted for the Australian Open.

Tennis fans were looking forward to seeing Williams again at the Australian Open but then the American suffered an unfortunate injury. After the Australian Open was over, Williams said she knew she would not be able to play at the Australian Open and she wanted Tennis Australia to give that wildcard to someone else.

"That's the point when I withdrew from the Australian Open. I had a wildcard and it was so awesome, but it wasn't for me and I wanted someone else to have that opportunity because I knew I wouldn't have a chance to play. I knew that it was going to be a bad injury.
