Serena, along with sister Venus, have been absent from the tennis scene for awhile with their injuries. America has no other pros on the women’s side ranked in the top 30. Serena plans on a tune-up tournament before Wimbledon. Barring any setbacks, both Serena and Venus should be back to top form at the U.S. Open in August.

While the Williams have been away, the likes of Li Na and Fracesca Schiavone have come to the forefront of women’s tennis, with Kim Clijsters and Maria Sharapova remaining in the spotlight. When Serena and Venus return to form, the top of women’s tennis will be as competitive as ever.
