Serena Williams visits South India’s best restaurant ahead of Eastbourne International
Tennis superstar Serena Williams was recently granted a wildcard to compete at the Wimbledon Championships later this month. In preparation for the third Major of the year, Williams has also taken a wildcard to Eastbourne International, where she will compete in doubles alongside Ons Jabeur.
The tournament started on Saturday and will end on June 25, two days before Wimbledon kicks off. On Friday, it was reported that Williams paid a visit to the South Indian Malayalam restaurant on Terminus Road. The restaurant is at the top of the list in the Tripadvisor ranking.
A spokesperson for the restaurant took to Facebook to speak lyrically about the visit of the 23-time Grand Slam champion.
“Who all are going to whistle with us?? A moment of bullshit. Guess who showed up and made our fun filled night so cool, Serena Williams. WOW such a great surprise for the tennis weekend!! Thank you so much for taking your time and visiting our little place. Glad you enjoyed our Kerala cuisine, fully sustainable menu and hospitality,” they wrote.
They also talked about how excited everyone at the restaurant was to meet the seven-time Wimbledon champion. Williams enjoyed the restaurant’s signature dish: fish wrapped in banana leaves.
“We are all here twirling with excitement. How many times have we seen and enjoyed your matches and today we saw you walk into our restaurant, have small chats and on top of that we served you one of our most demanding seafood specialties, fish in banana leaves!!! Over the moon,” the spokesperson added.
Serena Williams will make her long-awaited return to Wimbledon
The long wait for Serena Williams’ return to action is almost over. The participation of the former world No. 1 at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships was confirmed on Tuesday.
At Grass Slam last year, she injured her ankle in her opener against Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Due to his prolonged absence from the tour, his ranking fell to a modest world No. 1208.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion took to Instagram to confirm her appearance at Wimbledon.
“SW to SW19. It’s a date. 2022 See you there,” she captioned her post.
While the 40-year-old will continue her quest for a 24th Major, she will not be able to improve her ranking yet after the WTA stripped Wimbledon of ranking points following its ban on Russian and Belarus players.
