The French Open also did not go as per her planning and she suffered a shocking 2nd round exit. But the setback motivated her for a stronger comeback which she eventually did when she won Wimbledon. Then came the Olympics where she again suffered a shocking defeat. But she performed brilliantly again in the Cincinnati Masters to win the title.
When will she make a comeback?
As said by the superstar herself, she is planning to make a strong comeback when she features next year in Australia. As of now, she has 2 grand slams to her name and would like to increase her tally when she features next year. Apart from that, she has 13 singles titles to her name.
