Some backers had no idea what caused this mysterious bond.

While reports have suggested the American icon suffers from sinus issues, wearing it does provide some relief.

This is a medical issue that Serena confirmed back in 2007.

What did Serena Williams say?

In 2007, Serena reached out to reporters to start a sinus medication campaign and spread awareness.

The legendary tennis star said: “My secret is out. I suffer from the sinuses. Playing tennis or doing just about anything every day isn’t easy when you have sinuses.”

“You feel a lot of pressure, congestion and pain and training for Grand Slams like Wimbledon and the French Open, it’s not easy.

“It’s not easy to play when you have all this pressure. The last thing I want to do is go to a tennis court and play (sister) Venus and be tired. It’s not fun at all, especially against her, she’s so tough.”

When is Wimbledon 2022?

Wimbledon continues Monday, June 27th and close Sunday 10 July.

The 135th legendary tournament takes place at its usual venue at the famous All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London.

Novak Djokovic eventually rode to a four-set final win over Matteo Berrettini last summer, while Ash Barty defeated Karolina Pliskova in the women’s singles final.
