Serena Williams made her professional debut on the court since Wimbledon last year. Then I scratched in a first round match with Alaksandra Sasnowicz. This week in Eastbourne, the winner of 23 Grand Slam singles competes in doubles with Ons Jabeur. As for the American and the Tunisian, they have the second match behind them. They defeated Japan’s Shuko Aoyama 6:2, 6:4 and Taiwan’s Hao-Ching Chan.

In the first set, Williams and Jaber dominated the field. They had two fractures, in 2:1 and 4:1. There was a lot of fighting on the second end. The fate of up to six matches was decided by 40-40 points. There was only one breakthrough. Their American and Tunisian record is 5:4.

In the 65-minute match, Jabeur and Williams sent seven aces and their opponent had three. The Tunisian and the American managed to save nine break points and took advantage of three of seven breakout opportunities. They earned 10 points more than Oyama and Chan (57-47).

Williams is competing in doubles for the first time since January 2020. In Auckland, her partner was Carolina Wunyaka. The Americans and the Dane reached the final. Jaber won two singles this week, in Madrid in May and in Berlin last week. In doubles, in which the Tunisian national team rarely competes, it previously had a series of four consecutive matches in which it lost.
