Venus and Serena had a discouraging 2021 season

Both Serena and Venus went on to create huge impact on the WTA tour. Not just individually, the sisters also won tons of titles together and added multiple Grand Slams to their name.

In a major blow to her 24th Grand Slam chances, the American was forced to retire from her first-round match against Katerina Siniakova at the Wimbledon Championships due to an ankle injury that was caused by an unfortunate slip on-court.

Since then, Serena didn’t participate in any event and skipped the US Open as well.
