Will Serena Williams be able to win her first Grand Slam title after the birth of her daughter Olympia?

Serena Williams last won a Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2017. She was two months pregnant at that time; however, the former World No.1 delivered some exceptional performances there to win her 23rd Grand Slam title.
