KARACHI: Legendary tennis player Serena Williams would carry on with her comeback the following month at the National Bank Open in Toronto, Canada.
The 23-time grand slam singles champion took part in her first singles match in a year at Wimbledon, although she remained vague about her future goals.
However, the 40-year-old committed to participating in one of the US Open warm-up events, which will start on August 8.
She has won the US Open six times, although she is now unranked because she hasn't triumphed in a singles match in over a year.
Williams hadn't played since leaving her Wimbledon first-round match due to injury last year; she made her competitive tennis comeback in the doubles at Eastbourne last month.
Many people were unsure as to whether one of the best players in history had quietly entered retirement, but prior to this year's Wimbledon, she said: "I didn't retire. I just needed to heal physically, mentally.
"I had no plans, to be honest. I just didn't know when I would come back. I didn't know how I would come back."
Williams won her maiden Grand Slam championship at the US Open in 1999, and she most recently did so in 2017 at the Australian Open.
The US Open gets underway on August 29.
