She is up against French player Harmony Tan, who is currently ranked 113th in the world.

The order of play for Wimbledon day two has just been released. Williams will be the third match on centre court, so will play later this afternoon after Rafael Nadal’s match against Francisco Cerundolo.

UK viewers can watch the match on BBC where coverage is being shown live – either on BBC One, BBC Two or iPlayer.

If Williams wins, she will face either world 32 Sara Sorribes Tormo (Spain) or Christina McHale (US) who is ranked 261.

How many times has Serena Williams won at Wimbledon?

Serena Williams is one of the greatest tennis players of all time, having won more grand slams than any Open Era player – male or female.

She has lifted the Wimbledon trophy seven times in her career, which has spanned for more than 20 years.

The veteran was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon 2021 after suffering a torn hamstring while playing on centre court.

This is her 21st appearance at the London grass court tournament.
