塞雷娜-威廉姆斯將在周二參加伊斯特本雙打比賽時,在離開網球一年後復出。

這位40歲的美國人將與突尼斯的Ons Jabeur一起比賽。

威廉姆斯原定於周一在伊斯特本進行練習,但由於時間太晚,練習被取消了。

周日,威廉姆斯與美國同胞Frances Tiafoe在蘇塞克斯鎮的一家俱樂部進行擊球合影。

威廉姆斯和在WTA單打排名第三的賈布爾將於北京時間18:30左右在伊斯特本的中心球場與西班牙的薩拉-索里貝斯-托莫和捷克的瑪麗-布茲科娃比賽。

"塞雷娜在球場上是這樣一個鬥士。我真的很欽佩她的故事,欽佩她為我們、為女子網球所做的一切,"賈布爾說,他已經退出了單打比賽,因為在溫布爾登之前會 "太累"。

"她是如此的鼓舞人心,我們一起打雙打的事實對我來說是巨大的消息。

"這是令人難以置信的,說實話,我從來沒有想到她會選擇我,甚至在很長時間後還能打雙打。

"但我覺得我好像回到了過去,所有看着她贏得很多大滿貫的回憶。我希望這不會讓我太緊張,站在她身邊。"

在很久沒有參加比賽後,威廉姆斯決定只參加伊斯特本的雙打比賽,但已經獲得了參加下周一開始的溫布爾登單打比賽的外卡。

威廉姆斯是全英俱樂部的七次單打冠軍,距離澳大利亞人瑪格麗特-考特的24次大滿貫單打勝利記錄還差一個大滿貫。

Serena Williams is set to make her comeback after a year out of tennis when she plays in the Eastbourne doubles on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old American is playing with Tunisia's Ons Jabeur.

Williams was scheduled to practise at Eastbourne on Monday but the session was called off at late notice.

Williams was pictured hitting with fellow American Frances Tiafoe at a club in the Sussex town on Sunday.

Williams and Jabeur, who is third in the WTA singles rankings, will play Spain's Sara Sorribes Tormo and Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic on Eastbourne's centre court at about 18:30 BST.

"Serena is such a fighter on the court. I really admire her story, admire everything that she did for us, for women's tennis," said Jabeur, who has pulled out of the singles because it would be "too much" before Wimbledon.

"She's such an inspiration and the fact that we're playing doubles together is huge news for me.

"It's unbelievable, I honestly never expected her to pick me or even to play doubles after a long time.

"But I feel like I'm going way back and all the memories of watching her winning a lot of Grand Slams. I hope it's not going to make me too nervous, standing next to her."

After not playing competitively for so long, Williams decided to only enter the doubles at Eastbourne but has been given a wildcard to play in the singles at Wimbledon, which starts next Monday.

Williams is a seven-time singles champion at the All England Club and is one major win short of Australian Margaret Court's record 24 Grand Slam singles victories. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone • None How did J Edgar Hoover know too much for any US president to fire him? • None Jonathan Agnew asks Moeen Ali all of your questions in the commentary box
