Serena Williams in the 2021 tennis season

Even though it has been a fair season for Serena, she has not been able to win a title this year so far. She has definitely got starts but has not been able to convert them into trophies.

She kicked off the year’s campaign on a high and managed to reach the semis of the Australian Open 2021. Even though Naomi Osaka defeated her in straight sets there, the 39-year-old played some incredible tennis in Melbourne.

It was the clay-court season that proved to be a nightmare for her. She didn’t find her rhythm until the French Open 2021 as she lost the very first round of the Italian Open 2021 and then lost in the second round of the Parma Open 2021. Things got difficult for her but she managed to reach the pre-quarters of Roland Garros 2021 where, unfortunately, Elena Rybakina thrashed her in straight sets.

Williams had a golden chance of winning her 24th Grand Slam at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 but she injured her leg and could not even complete a single set in London.

Despite all the odds, fans still have huge expectations from Serena Williams. Will she be able to succeed at the US Open 2021?
