And it would be a first as a mum - or should that be second, given the American was in the early stages of pregnancy while claiming the Australian Open in 2017? "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great", Williams said afterwards.
But the 23-time major victor is heavily favoured to end her wait this week, fuelled by the thought of suffering the painful sting left by her rare defeats.
Yes, no matter what the rankings or seedings say, she still looks as if she's capable of playing like someone who's No. 1.

"For every single day that I'm here I'm trying to do my best". Plus, at Wimbledon in particular, she lost in the first round each of the past five years.

Kerber and Ostapenko have never clashed before but the showdown ensures a grand slam champion will make the final.
The 21-year-old is the only female player yet to drop a set in this year's tournament. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets. "It's now all gone", Ostapenko said.
"I will try to hold my service games most of the time. It's so much fun". She won a Grand Slam, as well.More news: Kylie Jenner has had her lip fillers removed
