Every tennis fan will have their eyes glued on the 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams in 2021. For a third season, she will campaign for the much-awaited 24th major of her career. In what looks like an almost impossible challenge, one can still never rule out the American great.

Last year, Serena started her season with a bang, winning the Auckland Open. It remains to date her first and only title as a mother. She also became the only player in the professional era to have won a title in each of the last four decades.

Further ahead, her second-best performance came at the US Open, where she lost in the semifinals. At the 2020 French Open, Serena withdrew on account of an Achilles’ injury.

However, all that is in the past now as the WTA season has already kick-started in Abu Dhabi. For the American, her season will start at one of the two WTA tune-up events in Melbourne Park; it is still not confirmed which one. Besides that, take a look at the tournaments Serena will probably play in 2021.

Due to the shortened 2020 season, the 39-year-old had participated in seven tournaments only. With enough time off and after recovering fully from her injury, Serena will try for #24 starting with the Australian Open.

Williams also has a good chance to equal or even break Margaret Court’s record, considering she will play every Slam. Fans will definitely side with her to do what many experts deem as impossible.

The American has claimed that her best in tennis is yet to come. Do you think Serena will claim her #24 in this year?
