Serena Williams is yet to win a Grand Slam title after the birth of her daughter

Serena shocked the world when she won her last Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2017. She defeated her elder sister, Venus Williams, in the finals and achieved her 23rd major despite the fact that she was two-months pregnant at that time.

Olympia was born on September 3, 2017. Surprisingly, since then, the former World No.1 player hasn’t won a single Grand Slam title. Even though she played four major finals after that, she failed to finish on the winning side on all four occasions. Olympia has watched her mother win tournaments and even Masters. However, she hasn’t witnessed her lift one of the Grand Slam titles.

As of now, Serena’s return date to the court is uncertain. She has turned 40 now and in such a situation, it will be hard for her to compete with the players who are almost half of her age. Will she be able to beat the odds and lift a Grand Slam title before bidding goodbye to the sport?
