Serena Williams upbeat about the US Open : Serena Williams’ agent Jill Smoller has given a short but upbeat update on her client’s health. According to Smoller, Serena is undergoing physiotherapy and hopes to be back in time for the last Grand Slam of the year – the US Open.

Williams sustained an injury to her right leg after stumbling on court during her 1st-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich in London at Wimbledon 2021. The 23-time Major champion received therapy but was incapable to resume and conceded the match to the Belarusian.

The American star did not disclose the magnitude of her injury at the time, and neither did her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Nevertheless, Mouratoglou did reveal that Serena Williams was able to walk, suggesting that the injury was not as severe as originally feared.

Now, Serena’s agent Jill Smoller, in a new chat with TMZ Sports, declared that the 39-year-old is “doing great.”

“She’s doing great,” Jill Smoller said when asked how Williams is feeling.

Jill Smoller was then requested to give an update regarding William’s return to the tour. Smoller said the Serena was presently undergoing treatment, but seemed convinced that the World No. 16 will be fit in time for the US Open.
Serena Williams won the US Open in 2014 and has not been able to rise to the same task again, hopefully 2021 could hold another win for her.

Serena Williams has a glittering track record at Flushing Meadows, despite last winning the title in 2014.

Since her initial US Open title in 1999, the American has added 5 more titles in New York to take her overall tally to six, one short of her haul the Australian Open and the Wimbledon.

Since securing the title for the 3rd time in 2008, the American has never lost prior to the semifinals in New York. During this phase, she has managed 3 runner-up finishes (2011, 2018 & 2019), 4 semifinal finishes (2009, 2015, 2016 & 2020) and 3 title-winning campaigns (2012, 2013 & 2014),

While Serena has secured more titles during this phase at the Australian Open – Melbourne (4) and Wimbledon – London (5), she has also experienced quite a few early exits. William’s record at Roland Garros – Paris stands at two titles in Paris since 2008, but she has also crashed out 7 times prior to the last 16.

Serena’s fans have been starved and are looking forward to this US Open quite eagerly in the hope to see her triumph for one more time at Flushing meadows.
