Serena Willaims should eventually come back on the courtroom for the grass-swing, precisely for the distinctly predicted Wimbledon 2022. We don’t forget Serena is out of the courtroom considering that Wimbledon 2021 first spherical, whilst she were given an harm who forced her to withdraw from the London Slam.
From that moment she in no way got here returned on the court. She finished the Calendar Grand Slam, which consists of winning four consecutive Grand Slams not in the same calendar yr, two times. She has also won the WTA Finals 5 times and the gold medal gained on the London Olympics in 2012 via beating Maria Sharapova.
She won a total of 73 WTA singles titles, including 23 Slams, behind only Margaret Smith Court, ahead of her with 24 Slams. The American won 16 Grand Slam tournaments in doubles and mixed doubles: 14 won with her older sister Venus and two in mixed doubles, both obtained with Maks Mirny in 1998.
To these successes must be added another three gold medals at the Olympics, all won together with Venus, a Federation Cup and two Hopman Cups.
Serena Williams: the important event she never won
Southern California Open: in 2004 Serena participated for the only time in her career at the event that was held in San Diego.
After the victories over Jelena Jankovic and Elena Bovina, she surrenders in the quarter-finals with the Russian Vera Zvonareva. Kremlin Cup, in which Serena participated in the tournament of the Russian capital only on two occasions.
On the second attempt she reaches the final after beating the favorite to win, Svetlana Kuznetsova. In the last act, however, she surrenders to Elena Dementieva in three sets. The American has participated three times in the German Open, a tournament that today is played on the grass of Berlin.
In 1999 she lost in the quarter-finals to Arantxza Sanchez Vicario. She then she reaches the final in 2002 with Justine Henin and again the quarter final in 2008 with Dinara Safina. Since that year she has not participated in the event anymore.
Serena shows up at Wuhan Open 2014 with the underdogs and the number 1 seed. In the second round with Alize Cornet, however, she has to retire to her 65 in favor of her due to dizziness and aches. Serena did not play the tournament after that year.
Very curious to note how, in the seven defeats of the year, the Frenchwoman caused three. At the Zurich Open, Serena participates on two occasions and in 2007 she gets perhaps one of the worst defeats of her career. In the first round she faces house darling, Patty Schnyder, who doesn’t give her a single game before her retirement.
