Serena Williams May Play in More Tournaments for Grand Slam Preparation

Williams will play for her eighth Wimbledon title

For tennis buffs, there is no more exciting event than the Wimbledon tournament in London, and for American tennis fans there is no more dynamic player than Serena Williams.

While Comaneci had total faith that her friend would triumph on Saturday, others were not so sure considering Halep had won only one of her previous 10 meetings against Williams - and that nearly five years ago.

The 27-year-old Halep set the tone by breaking the Williams serve in the opening game and raced into a 4-0 lead in front of 15,000 incredulous fans on Centre Court.

"In the meantime, I got pregnant, had a baby, so. that definitely plays a little bit into it". Even after winning long rally points - and she won nearly all of them - she never did anything more than clench a fist and raise it near her face in her trademark fashion.

"I don't know. I feel like I'm just really on this journey of just doing the best that I can, playing the best that I can when I can". Serena sprayed a forehand error in the first game of the match to give serve away, finding herself 2-0 down when Simona held at love in game two with a backhand error and allowing the Romanian to grab another break with a backhand down the line victor.

Halep won 83% of her first-serve points, an excellent percentage at any time. This is not the kind of background din you need when trying to win a Grand Slam.


"I will believe that I have my chance to win against her [Williams]", she said after beating Svitolina. You can get intimidated by the moment.

Watching her daughter do that - and win - her mum Tania had no more words. But she never felt quite comfortable with her footing on grass. You can get nervous, too nervous. So I did that. "I started to feel this year when the ball comes to me I knew what to do with it".

'I lived it with [Boris] Becker, lived it with [Goran] Ivanisevic and lived it again today, ' Tiriac had been saying before he was interrupted.

Perhaps it will be Halep's journey that can provide some guidance. I would like to see her put everything else aside from that. Notably, she also refused to join in this fortnight with any chorus of protest from the women about the scheduling of matches compared with the men. "I didn't think about the score at all".

"If anything, I could just learn to be like that".
