Serena Williams in the 2021 season so far

Williams began the season on a really high note as she reached the semis of the Australian Open 2021. Even though she suffered a resounding defeat at the hands of Naomi Osaka there, reaching a Grand Slam semi-final at the age of 39 is an achievement in itself. She even thrashed two of the top-10 WTA players in the tournament.

Following the first Major of the season, however, she suffered from oral issues that compelled her to take a break before returning at the Italian Open 2021. Things didn’t go well for Serena as she lost in the very first match she played there. Following this, she took part at the Emilia-Romagna Open 2021 but faced the same result there in the second round.
