What time is Serena Williams’ match today? Wimbledon schedule for Tuesday

Everything you need to know as the American makes her Wimbledon return

Serena on Wimbledon return: 'I didn't retire, I just needed to heal'

Serena Williams makes her long-awaited grand slam return this afternoon as the seven-time Wimbledon champion takes on Harmony Tan on Centre Court today.

It comes 12 months after Williams last played a singles match, which ended in tears when the 23-grand slam champion tore her hamstring in the opening round of last year’s Wimbledon.

The 40-year-old Williams received a shock wildcard for the main draw after she made her return to the court alongside Ons Jabeur in the Eastbourne doubles last week.

Williams received a kind opening draw against French wildcard Tan, who is ranked 115th in the world. “Every match is hard,” Williams said. “Every match. You can’t underestimate anyone or any match any day. Anyone could have been drawn to me.”

Here’s everything you need to know.

What time is Serena Williams’s match today?

Serena Williams’ match is last on Centre Court on Tuesday and with Rafael Nadal being taken to a fourth set by Francisco Cerundolo, it means Serena will not be in action until at least 7:30pm.

How can I watch Wimbledon on TV and is there a live stream?

The BBC will once again be providing full coverage of Wimbledon, in what is Sue Barker’s final year of presenting the Championships. Coverage will begin on BBC Two at 11am BST on the first two days of play, with BBC One then starting from 1:45pm. The action will also be available to watch on the BBC iPlayer while the BBC Sport website will be showing action from around the grounds. Today at Wimbledon presented by Clare Balding will round up the best of the action each night at 8:30pm on BBC Two.
