Venus Williams has performed below par this season

Reflecting on her season so far, Williams began the season in Melbourne and ended up losing in the second round of the first Grand Slam event of the season. 

After that, she competed in the French Open in which she crashed out in the opening round of the event. Sadly, the French Open has been a Grand Slam event that the American star has never won.
