Wimbledon 2021: Why this is the best opportunity for Serena Williams to equal record 24th Grand Slam- Tennis legend Serena Williams will take part in the Wimbledon 2021 in her bid to win record 24th Grand Slam. The 39-year-old is one short of Margaret Court when it comes to her Grand Slam tally. The absence of defending champion Simona Halep and 4-time grand slam champion, a fierce competitor of Serena, increases the possibility of Serena Williams to capture the 24th title at the All England Club.

Wimbledon: Why this is the best opportunity for Serena Williams to equal record 24th Grand Slam

Simona Halep

Williams will have to face Simona Halep who outclassed her in her final appearance at the Wimbledon 2019. Even though Serena had a 10-2 record over Halep, the Romanian had the potential to dominate Williams owing to her current poor form.

Naomi Osaka

The 4-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka is leading the head-to-head record against Serena. Osaka has defeated Williams thrice in five matches, including the US Open 2018 Final and Australian Open 2021 semifinal, and went to win the title.

Ash Barty

Meanwhile, Williams has a better record against World No.1 Ash Barty. She has defeated her twice in both meetings- Roland Garros (2018) and the Australian Open (2014). She needs to improve her games against low-ranked players if she wants to script history by winning her 7th Wimbledon crown.
