Wimbledon. The return of Serena Williams is a defeat, the “motivated” to play in the US Open

At Wimbledon,

Disappointed, but not defeated. A year ago, he left the Kentron court in tears and had to surrender as soon as he ran, injured in the leg. He threw down the gauntlet after four games against Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus. The American left central Wimbledon with a strong smile on Tuesday evening, to return to the courts a year later. Meeting the amazing Harmony Tan, he was just his shadow at the very end of the very disagree game. She cried loudly from time to time to encourage herself. But due to the lack of competition, he made a huge 54 errors (against 28 of his opponent) – did not have the usual efficiency after his first serve (only 66% with the first serve of points). Not surprisingly, he was very borrowed in his movements, lacking accuracy and precision in many of his shots.

He fought to the end, but lost his breath after three hours of fighting (3 hours 11). « Physically, I got pretty good. assessed the American. But I did not know how to win the key points at the end of the match. If I had more matches in the competition, maybe I would have won those points. Today I gave everything I could. Another opponent would probably be more suited to my game, I can not change the weather or anything. That’s all I could do today. I struggled and did what I could. I stayed calm. I was not angry. It was a huge victory for me not to break a rocket «.

He could play in the US Open

In the Super Draw-Break, the American then quickly split 4-0, seemed to be heading for victory, but could not maintain her advantage, and finally bowed down exhausted. Harmony Tan, who is 113th in the world, has reached his contest, he has a great merit, he will never give up against the winner of the seven of the tournament. His fluctuating game greatly hindered the legend with 23 Grand Slam titles. The Frenchwoman will remember her first time on the legendary court in London.

Now a businesswoman, Serena Williams is the 1204th woman in the world, still a tennis player. How long? It was in London that he won his first Grand Slam in 1998 at the age of 16 in a mixed doubles title against Max Mirny of Belarus, 6-4, 6-4, beating Mirjana Bhupati of India and Mirjana Luիչիi: of Croatia. The first of his 39 Grand Slam successes – in singles – doubles combined. It was probably in London that he bowed. This is a question I can not answer. I do not know. Who knows ? Who knows where I will end up.At the US Open? At the end of August at home. Most likely, if we go to his press conference with his last answer. This is where I won my first Grand Slam tournament (1999), it’s always something special. Your first time is always unique. Undoubtedly, I am very motivated to improve and play at home«. Maybe to close the loop.
