Coming to the tennis, the sisters had a pretty forgettable year with Venus bowing out in the initial rounds at various tournaments. Serena’s attempts to win another major title were hampered by players like Naomi Osaka (Australian Open) and Elena Rybakina (French Open).

While everyone thought Wimbledon would give Serena a best chance to grab the 24th major, the American had a disastrous run at the event as she was forced to retire from her first-round matchup against Aliaksandra Sasnovich due to a hamstring injury.
