By Christopher Clarey
As the tennis tours laid out their road maps earlier this week for a return to play in August, Serena Williams confirmed her desire to be a major part of those comeback plans and to play in this year’s U.S. Open.
“Ultimately I really cannot wait to return to New York and play,” she said Wednesday in a video message. “I feel like the USTA is going to do a really good job of ensuring everything is amazing and everything is perfect and everyone is safe.”
