Serena Williams and her family spend a lot of time together

In recent times, we have come across many clips in which all of them indulge in family time. They travel together across the globe, accompanying Serena for her tournaments. Some time ago, they were all enjoying gelato on the streets of Rome. 

Coming on to tennis, Williams began her journey in Australia and came as far as the semifinal at the Open. Soon after, she took a brief break and made a return directly to Rome, in preparation for the French Open.

At Roland Garros, she exited in the early rounds, clearly not matching up her usual standards. Following that, she competed at the Wimbledon Championships, in which she sprained her ankle and was forced to withdraw in the first round itself. 

She intends to make a return in the final Grand Slam event of the season, the US Open. We hope she recovers in time at can come back stronger.
