American tennis ace Serena Williams is arguably the greatest female athlete on Earth. Over the years, she has maintained a consistent flow of producing successful results. After achieving tremendous success in tennis, earning more than her share of honors in the game, she has also found success outside of tennis. Despite all that, her desire and hunger remain undiminished.

A disruptive season so far

Coming to Serena and tennis, she began her season at the WTA Melbourne Open 2021. However, she was forced to withdraw before her semifinal clash due to a shoulder injury. Later, she competed at the Australian Open and won the initial rounds with ease. In the semifinal, she lost to the eventual champion, Naomi Osaka.
