Since Melbourne, the American struggled to produce consistent performances on the WTA tour as she was defeated by players like Nadia Podoroska and Elena Rybakina on the clay-court swing. As Wimbledon looked like an ideal tournament for Serena to pick up her 24th major title, her run was cut short by an unfortunate hamstring injury.

If doctors and the medical team deems her fit, fans might see Serena back on action at the Indian Wells event, which starts next month.
