Injury scare

Serena Williams recently withdrew from the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati.  She is focusing on her recovery from a leg injury that she suffered mid-match at Wimbledon. Notably, in June, the 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams was forced to bow out of the opening round fixture against Aliaksandra Sasnovich after slipping on the wet court at Wimbledon.

Pressure

Serena Williams, who will be chasing record 24th Grand Slam at US Open, needs to overcome the pressure. She has failed to win the title since the Australian Open 2017 besides entering the 4 Grand Slams finals. With time running out of her tennis career, she will be looking to make the most of the recovery time and come out all guns blazing to win her 7th US Open title.

Form

Serena has been out of form since the last matches. She has let down herself against unknown tennis players who rank way below her. 23rd seeded Elena Rybakina had ended her Roland Garros campaign in round 4 fixture before her injury setback at Wimbledon. She also has a dismal performance at WTA Tour. Williams has lost 6 out of 19 matches but her hardcourt record stands at 9:2. Thus, she can rose the occasion at the US Open.
