"Williams will also feel frustrated that, during the past 15 months, she has reached three Grand Slam finals, only to lose all of them in straight sets."

Next week's US Open will be Serena Williams's last Grand Slam before she turns 38 in September, another reminder that time maybe running out in her quest to become the most decorated player in the history of the women's game.

The American currently has 23 Slam titles in her locker, one short of the all-time record held by Margaret Court who claimed her 24 victories between 1960 and 1973.

Williams not only wants to equal the total of Australia's Court but also overtake it, but to do so would have to become the oldest Slam champion in more than 60 years.

Williams will also feel frustrated that, during the past 15 months, she has reached three Grand Slam finals, only to lose all of them in straight sets.

She has actually lost five of her last seven Slam finals, having never previously lost two in a row between 1999 and 2015.

Since returning to competitive action following the birth of her first child, she has completely reduced her schedule, which may be one of the reasons why she has failed to finally achieve her ambitions.

One thing in her favour on this occasion, as she heads to Flushing Meadows, is that she did reach the final of the Rogers Cup in Toronto only a few weeks ago.

However, she was forced to retire from the match after just four games, suffering from back spasms.

Hopefully, she will be fully recovered and rested ahead of the US Open which begins on Monday.

Serena's Challengers

As with the men's game right now, it seems that the younger generation of women players are finding it increasingly more difficult to retain top form for long periods of time.

This probably highlights the competitive nature of world tennis, with so many talented new players flooding the circuit each year.

The newest star in the women's game is teenage Canadian Bianca Andreescu, who wasn't even born when Williams claimed her first slam title 20 years ago.

Andreescu has come from nowhere to win two Premier level titles during 2019, both on hard court, while racing up the WTA World Ranking from 178 on January 1st, to her current position of No 15.

The forthcoming US Open will only be the fourth slam event of her career but she will head to New York full of confidence with few expectations on her shoulders.

Another player who should be riding high is Madison Keys who sneaked back into the world's top 10 last week by winning the Premier 5 event in Cincinnati.

The 24-year-old American was a beaten finalist in New York two years ago, and reached the semi-finals here in 2018.

Karolina Pliskova and Anastasija Sevastova are the only players to have reached the quarter-final stage in each of the last three US Opens, while Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty and Simona Halep are also obvious contenders in the Big Apple.

Defending champion Ozaka has failed to reach a final on the WTA Tour since winning her second Slam in Melbourne during January but, at 21, is most definitely one of the stars of the future.

As for Britain's Johanna Konta, the Sydney-born player appears to have completely lost confidence since suffering a shock quarter-final defeat at Wimbledon to doubles-specialist Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic.
