The 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams, won her last major championship at the 2017 Australian Open. Since then, Williams is yet to win a Grand Slam title and has unfortunately lost in her last four Grand Slam finals appearances.

Peeking back at the 2017 Australian Open, Williams had a stellar run and won the tournament without dropping a set. However, an interesting incident happened during her fourth-round match against Czech tennis player, Barbora Strycova.

The chair umpire accused Williams of swearing on-court after the American won a grueling first set against Strycova.

 

Did Serena Williams swear on-court?

Williams hit back at the chair umpire with a funny reply, saying that she usually curses every match but didn’t swear a single time that day. The chair umpire looked amused after hearing William’s statement, while the latter remarked that saying “Come on” wasn’t bad.

 

“I haven’t cursed. I really haven’t. Today is the first day I haven’t, I usually do every match but I haven’t. I will be careful, but I haven’t said anything bad. ‘Come on’ isn’t bad, I haven’t said anything.” remarked Williams.

 

With the 2021 Australian Open just three weeks away, Williams will aim to equal Margaret Court’s record of winning 24 Grand Slam titles. Since 2017, Williams hasn’t gone past the quarterfinal stage at Melbourne Park.

 

She recently landed in Adelaide to prepare for the Australian Open and is currently undergoing a two-week quarantine as per the health protocols. However, the players are allowed to train for five hours each day until the completion of the quarantine period.
