“I have been reflecting on my life, and came to the realization that I’m exactly where I am supposed to be. Welcome to my work-cation,” wrote Williams in the caption of her Instagram post.

Serena is clearly on a vacation but she is working there as well. Thus, she decided to call it a ‘work-cation’. Interestingly, in two of the other posts, one can see her enjoying some time and posing with her 3-year-old daughter Olympia. Fortunately, she looks fit and fine and might return to the court before the end of this season only.

Serena Williams in the 2021 tennis season

It hasn’t been a great season for Serena Williams so far. She is yet to win a title on the WTA tour and hasn’t had a great record on the court too.

Even though the 39-year-old enjoyed a great start at the Australian Open 2021 as she reached the semi-finals, she suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Naomi Osaka. After the Grand Slam in Melbourne, she failed to leave a mark.

The clay-court season proved to be a nightmare for Serena as before the French Open 2021, she had a 1-2 win-loss record on the surface. Although she reached the pre-quarters in Paris, Elena Rybakina thrashed her in straight sets there and ended her Roland Garros campaign.

After this, she took part at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 but injured her leg without even completing a single set. As a result, she had to withdraw from the Grand Slam.
