However, she was unable to impress with her performances on the surface and, as a result, did not make it deep into the French Open. After that, prior to the Wimbledon Championships, Williams did not play any warm-up event. 

Later at the All England Club, she suffered an opening-round exit as she ended up twisting her ankle during the first set of the match. Fans will hope to see her competing on the courts again, especially since the US Open is around the corner.
