Serena Williams is still chasing Margaret Court’s famous record of 24 slams. The American legend is 1 major shy from equalling the Australian, but that has not been happening. Serena reached 4 slam finals after giving birth to her lovely daughter Olympia, but she lost all finals in straight sets.
The American icon is getting ready for the upcoming US Open and according to former world no.6 Chanda Rubin, the former world no.1 can take advantage of the current break to be fresh and win her elusive slam.
“I think Serena can win another Major and I certainly think this period of having time off, being with her family and her daughter, and not having another tournament looming will help her. It’s been a different kind of thought process for players.
I’ve felt it and I’m retired, but it’s just been a different way of living; in a way, it could help Serena Williams. The time off could undoubtedly help her in those big moments and matches. We’ve seen her repeatedly doing unbelievable things in getting to finals and not playing her best tennis there.”
