Serena Williams performed best in Melbourne this season

On the court, Williams began her season in Adelaide. She was part of an exhibition event and soon after was seen in Melbourne. Out there, she ended her journey in the semifinal after losing to eventual champion Naomi Osaka.

After that, she was not seen for a considerable amount of time. Her next tournament was in Rome. However, during the entire clay season, she did not perform up to her usual standards and failed to go deep into the French Open as well. 

Unfortunately, she had to end her stint at the Wimbledon Championships after she was injured during the first set of her opening round match. She had twisted her ankle and since then has not featured in any competitive match. We hope to see her back on the Tour soon.
