To play for Australia’s Opals, Lauren Jackson, Hall of Famer has agreed to come out of international retirement. The 41-year-old announced retirement in 2016 because of a knee injury.

“There’s a little bit of apprehension. I’m definitely a little bit scared and excited but who knows what will happen with my body,” Jackson told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.

Williams makes a winning comeback
On Tuesday, Serena Williams made a sensational comeback as she along with her partner defeated Sara Sorribes and Marie Bouzkova. The former world number one had not played competitive tennis as she got injured of last year’s first-round match at Wimbledon. “It was so fun to play with Ons,” Williams said.

“We had fun. “I caught some fire behind me! I needed that. It was good. We’re just taking it one day at a time.”
