London — As the 23rd Grand Slam Champion returned to single action a year later next week, Serena Williams was drawn to play against French Harmony Tan in the first round of Wimbledon.

40-year-old Americans avoid big names and get a chance to take part in a tournament with Tan, the world's number 113. Because she is targeting the unlikely eighth title.

Williams hasn't played a singles match since he retired from the injured in the first round a year ago.

Top seed Iga Swiatek, who has won 35 games, will face Croatian qualifier Jana Fett in the opening match.

British US Open Champion Emma Raducanu faces a tricky opener against experienced Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck.

The 16th seed, former champion Simona Halep, will probably appear in the first round of collision picks when playing against Czech Karolina Muchova.
