At a press conference in Berlin after her victory against Garbine Muguruza, Andrea Petkovic spoke about the great return of Serena Williams, invited to Wimbledon. If she is delighted for tennis that the American legend is returning to service at 40, the German hopes on the other hand not to cross her path.
“It’s a good thing for her and a bad thing for us. Of course, this is great news for the women’s circuit. Many colleagues thought she was already retired, but I wasn’t so sure.

I am convinced that she has prepared well in recent weeks to go to Wimbledon.worried the 59e world player.
