Can Serena Williams win the Australian Open 2021?

The win against Naomi Osaka in a tough match will surely give Williams some confidence before the Australian Open 2021. She is making a comeback after the French Open 2020 which she left in between due to an unfortunate injury and the win would certainly act as a stimulus for her.

In the match, one could see Williams smashing some powerful serves and delivering some great forehand winners. She has certainly got a great forehand, but will need to work on her backhand and return of serve.

Williams last won a Grand Slam four years ago, after which she has played four Grand Slams finals. However, she hasn’t been able to win any of them. With her current form, she’ll definitely target this Slam and will like to win her first Grand Slam in front of her daughter Olympia.
