Venus Williams has been poor at the Grand Slams 

Williams began her 2021 season in Melbourne, competing at the Australian Open. Unfortunately, her journey ended pretty quickly, as she lost in the second round. After that, she competed in Miami but ended her stint after losing in the opening round.

Her performances kept on deteriorating as she crashed out in the opening round of the next four events. While her single stint at the Wimbledon Championships, ended after a second-round loss to Ons Jabeur, her mixed doubles stint ended after her partner, Nick Kyrgios, had to pull out due to an injury.
