Venus Williams had last competed in a singles match at the Chicago Women's Open in August 2021, losing to Hsieh Su-Wei in the initial round.

Former world number one Venus Williams will make her singles comeback after nearly a year at the Citi Open in Washington D.C. that begins next week, organisers said on Thursday.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion accepted a wildcard for the July 30-August 7 WTA 250 event a day after announcing she will also compete at next month’s WTA 1000 event in Toronto, where she will be joined by her sister Serena.

Venus, 42, last played a singles match at the Chicago Women’s Open in August 2021, losing in the first round to Hsieh Su-Wei. Her most recent return to the court was when she teamed up with Britain’s Jamie Murray and reached the second round in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon.
