Where will Serena travel to next on her tennis tour?

After losing to Naomi Osaka in the Australian Open 2021 semifinals, Serena broke down in tears because her 24th Grand Slam title dream had slipped out of her hand once again.

Furthermore, Serena even confessed that the burden of achieving this feat was different from all the others. However, the 23-time Grand Slam champion will continue her quest ahead in the season.

But before she prepares for the French Open, she will probably participate in the upcoming Miami Open 2021. Since it’s a 1000 points event, the title could bring a decent boost to her confidence.

Do you think Serena will reach the #24 landmark this year?
