Recently, it was revealed that Venus Williams will be receiving a wildcard for the upcoming US Open 2021. As a 41-year-old player, her making the main draw of a Grand Slam event is a remarkable achievement. Having played her first US Open in 1997, she’s surely had a long journey.

Over the year, Williams has won two US Open titles and has reached the semifinal of the final Grand Slam of the season on five occasions. However, in the recent past, her performances have suffered a dip according to her usual standards. 

Reflecting on her season so far, Williams began the season in Melbourne and ended up losing in the second round of the first Grand Slam event of the season. 

After that, she competed in the French Open in which she crashed out in the opening round of the event. Sadly, the French Open has been a Grand Slam event which the American star has never won.

At the Wimbledon Championships, she lost in the second round. This has been her favorite Grand Slam event, recording five titles in her career. 

At the moment, she has decided to skip the warm-up tournaments of the US Open Series. She intends to resume her season at the final Major event of the season, the US Open 2021. We wish her the very best for the upcoming matches and the rest of the season.
