Serena Williams turned a few heads as she made her way back to the tennis courts on Tuesday.
The 13-time Grand Slam singles champion has not played an official match since she won the title at Wimbledon in July. Williams celebrated her first day back on the court by tweeting her fans a picture of her outfit and form.
Williams tweeted: “Cool news guys stay tuned.. Ill update u with a pic.. U ready??”
Then, a little while later, she tweeted again: “Look who I spotted on the court. Her first day back…”
When her followers clicked on the link, they saw Serena in a neon pink body suit, with a racket in her right hand getting ready to serve.
“She was out hitting some balls today. Taking it day by day depending on how she’s feeling and was very happy to be back on the court,” Jill Smoller, Serena’s agent, wrote in an email to The Associated Press.
In spite of being away for so long, Serena is still at No. 10 in this week’s WTA rankings.
