Serena Williams claims her first singles win in more than a year at the Canadian Open







Serena Williams won her first singles match in 430 days on Monday by beating Spain’s Nuria PΓ‘rrizas DΓ­az 64-63 at the Canadian Open in Toronto. Williams, whose last singles win was at Roland Garros 2021, had to fight to beat PΓ‘rrizas DΓ­az for almost two hours, despite what the direct overs score might suggest. The 23-time Grand Slam champion only lost serve once in the match but saved seven break points, including four as she placed 34th in the second set to hold her 57th place worldwide.




That means Williams will face Belinda Bencic or Tereza Martincova in the second round on Wednesday. Playing her first singles match of the year at Wimbledon in June, the 40-year-old lost to France’s Harmony Tan in an interesting encounter and then hinted she could play at home at the US Open, which starts in August 29. Playing towards the end of his career, Williams said: “I guess there’s only light at the end of the tunnel… That’s how it happened to me recently. I can’t wait to reach that light.
