“We will dedicate a moment to celebrate his remarkable accomplishments and express our heartfelt gratitude for the indelible memories he has given us,” Bolton expressed.
She further mentioned that Serena Williams, who secured an impressive seven out of her 23 major singles titles at Wimbledon, was also extended an invitation.
However, due to her pregnancy, she understandably couldn’t undertake the journey.
After retiring last season, Williams has ventured into a new chapter of her life. Bolton conveyed well wishes for her ongoing pregnancy and expressed hopes of potentially seeing her return to Wimbledon next year.
