Serena Williams’ competitive preparation for Wimbledon will feature two doubles matches.
The WTA said on Thursday that Williams’ doubles partner Ons Jabeur withdrew from the grass-court event in Eastbourne due to an injury to his right knee. After winning two matches so far on the south coast of England, she was to play Magda Lynette and Alexandra Krunic in the semi-finals.
Williams is making a comeback after a year away from tennis.
The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion has received a wild card entry to play in the singles tournament at Wimbledon starting Monday.
Jabeur is at number three in singles. There was no immediate news about the severity of his injury.
