Serena Williams says her first-round loss on Tuesday has inspired her to compete in more Grand Slams, though she is undecided if she would return to Wimbledon.
The 23-time major champion succumbed to Harmony Tan in a thrilling three-set encounter despite missing a year due to injuries, 7-5 1-6 7-6 (10-7).
Williams, who has won the Wimbledon singles championship seven times and is trying to surpass Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles victories, said she didn't want Tuesday's defeat to be her last recollection of the court.
Nearly one year to the day after suffering a right ankle injury during her first-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Williams played France's Tan.
She acknowledged earlier this month that she had had second thoughts about her tennis career as she made her comeback at Eastbourne in the doubles with Ons Jabeur.
However, after falling to Tan, Williams made a suggestion that she may be tempted to keep up her preparation if she were to compete in her home major, the US Open, which starts in late August.
