SPORTS | Serena Williams Heads To French Open With Time Running Out For No.24

PARIS  – Serena Williams will have just two weeks to shake off the disappointment – equaling 24th Grand Slam title on the claycourts at French Open.

The American great has remained one title behind Margaret Court’s all –time record since bagging her 23rd Grand Slam singles trophy at the Australian Open in January 2017.

Williams has lost four Grand Slam finals since returning to the circuit in 2018 following the birth of her daughter and once again fell short on Thursday when she bowed out to Victoria Azarenka wih a 1-6 6-3 6-3 defeat in the U.S. Open semi-finals.

‘I don’t know. I mean, it’s obviously disappointing’, Williams told reporters, before confirming that she would participate in the French Open.

‘At the same time I did what I could today. I feel like other times I’ve been close and I could have done better. Today I felt like I gave a lot’.

Many former pundits have said she might be returning out of time to win a Grand Slman again.

It was definitely not getting any easier for Williams, who will turn 39 a day before the main draw kicks off in Paris on her least rewarding surface where the American won her third and last title in 2015.
