Serena Williams and Jabeur reach Eastbourne doubles semifinals

Serena Williams’ comeback continued as she and Ons Jabeur reached the Eastbourne doubles semi-finals with a straight sets win over Shuko Aoyama and Chan Hao-ching.

The American great, playing just her second match in 12 months, produced a strong serving performance in a 6-2 6-4 win over the doubles specialists.

“Ons held me up today, she was so good,” Williams, 40, said.

Williams has been given a singles wildcard into Wimbledon, which begins on Monday, but joined forces with the Tunisian singles world number three to gain some grass-court practice.

“I think we played together much better today – although I thought we played really well yesterday,” said 23-time Grand Slam singles champion Williams.

“I was looking at Ons like ‘wow’ during the match.”

The two will face Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic and Poland’s Magda Linette for a place in the final.
