Serena williams plans to return to the tennis court in a few weeks … so says his agent, Jill smoller, who tells TMZ Sports the star is hoping to get rid of his leg injury in time for the US Open.
You will remember… Serena collapsed in pain at Wimbledon in her first round match on June 29, and things were NOT going well for the 39-year-old.
She yelped as she hit the grass … and burst into tears as she left court – leaving many wondering if she could possibly be over for the rest of the year.
But, when we brought Smoller out to Los Angeles this week… she told us that Williams’ recovery process was going well.
“She’s doing great,” Smoller said.
In fact, Smoller told us he hopes Serena is ready to go when the US Open kicks off in New York on August 30.
As for Serena’s injury, it’s unclear exactly what’s wrong with the leg… but Smoller said Williams is “just doing rehab” at the moment.
Our sincere thanks to
