Wimbledon 2022: Serena Williams vs Harmony Tan – Live Score Updates!

0

Center Court action wrapped up at Wimbledon on day two as Serena Williams made her comeback against Harmony Tan. It was the American’s first singles match since the opening round at Wimbledon 12 months ago, when she managed six matches before forfeiting Aliaksandra Sasnovich. An injury kept her off the court until she played doubles at Eastbourne with Ons Jabeur.

The shock victory was Tan’s first-ever main draw match at Wimbledon, with the 24-year-old playing in stunning style with little sign of rust from Williams.

The 40-year-old has 23 Grand Slam titles to her name, one shy of Margaret Court’s record. Four times Williams had the chance to equalize, four times she was beaten in the final in straight sets. Follow live coverage of the match with Matt Verri at Wimbledon, with all the reaction to Williams’ defeat to come.

Harmony Tan reacts to this stunning win

“I don’t know, I’m so emotional. I do not know what to say. She’s a superstar, when I was young I watched her so many times. For my first Wimbledon…just wow.

“I’m really surprised today! After the draw, I was really scared – because it’s Serena Williams. It’s a legend, I was like ‘Oh my God, how can I play?’ If I could win one or two games, that would have been really good for me.
