Tennis ace Serena Williams has had a troubled season so far. Recently at the Wimbledon Championships, she had to withdraw midway through her opening round match. Unfortunately, she twisted her ankle during the early stages of the match and had to make the tough decision of not continuing the match.

Although, it is not known if she will play a tournament prior to the final Grand Slam event of the season. Earlier this year, Williams took a break for close to three months after her Australian Open exit.

She later returned on Tour for the clay season, competing in Rome. However, her performances on the clay were not so impressive. After that, came the Wimbledon Championships, where she had suffered from an unfortunate incident. 

Coming to her association with the US Open, she has won the tournament previously on six occasions. In 2018 and 2019 she was the finalist, losing to Naomi Osaka and Bianca Andreescu respectively.

However, her best performance this season was in Melbourne, when she came as far as the semifinal before losing to eventual champion, Naomi Osaka.
