Romanian tennis player Andreea Prisacariu absolutely enjoyed watching Serena Williams return to action as she called the American a “true champion” and the “greatest of all time.” On Tuesday, Williams played her first singles match in 12 months at Wimbledon.
Williams, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, exited the tournament in the first round as Harmony Tan edged out the American 7-5 1-6 7-6 (7). “No matter what. No matter how. A true champion. My champion. My inspiration. The greatest of all time.
Forever and Always. Queen S, I love you!” Prisacariu wrote on Twitter.

Prisacariu was thrilled to see Williams back in action
After the Wimbledon exit, Williams was askd about her future.
Williams confirmed she would like to play the US Open as she underlined that her home Slam will always be special. “When you are at home, especially in New York, and knowing that the US Open is the first Grand Slam I have won, it is definitely something super special.
Your first time is always special. I have a lot of motivation to improve and to play at home,” Williams said. However, Williams couldn’t confirm she would return to Wimbledon in 2023. “That’s a question I can’t answer [on returning to Wimbledon next year].
I don’t know. Who knows? Who knows if I’ll be there or not,” Williams said. Before the tournament started, some feared the lack of matches would be too much to overcome for Williams. After the loss, Williams admitted the lack of matches played a role in her Wimbledon exit.
“If you’re playing week in, week out, or even every three weeks, every four weeks, there’s a little bit more match toughness. But with that being said, I felt like I played pretty okay on some of them. Not all of them.
Maybe some key ones I definitely could have played better. You’ve got to think if I were playing matches, I wouldn’t miss some of those points,” Williams said. It remains to be seen when will Williams get back to action.
