Tennis/Wimbledon 2022 – Why does Serena Williams play with plaster on her cheek?

She is one of the attractions of this 2022 edition. Back on the singles courts after a year’s absence, and this abandonment within this same All England Club against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Serena Williams, the player with 23 Grand Slams at the counter, find the light. And it is therefore with a lot of questions that fans have seen the 40-year-old American play in recent days, especially at the Eastbourne tournament, which she played in doubles alongside Ons Jabeur, with a funny plaster on the right cheek.

Playing tennis or doing just about anything every day isn’t easy when you have sinusitis

During the Beijing Winter Games a few months ago, some athletes had already made the talk by taping their faces, but it was because of the cold. And if London is known for its capricious weather, we are not reduced to such extremes either because of the thermometer. According to Timesthis new look would rather be due to a problem of sinusitis, which has bothered the player for many years.

Sinusitis, which causes, among other things, pain in the head and behind the two cheekbones, hence the use of these pieces of plaster in this place. In comments reported by the Edinburgh Evening News in 2007, Serena Williams, opposed to the Frenchwoman Harmony Tan in the first round, declared as follows: “Playing tennis or doing just about anything every day is not easy when you have sinusitis. You feel a lot of pressure, congestion and pain. And to train for Grand Slams…that is not easy”. Will this band-aid bring happiness to the seven-time winner of Wimbledon this year?
