‘She played her best tennis ever’: Serena Williams on loss to Karolina Pliskova

August 29, 2019


My ankle seems to be fine. I usually don’t
know until the next day, so … I think she just played lights out on match
point, literally, hitting lines. Just went for – just went crazy on match point. So
I don’t think – she just played unbelievable on match point. I mean, the big picture for me is always winning.
I’m not going to sit here and lie about that. But it hasn’t happened yet, but I feel like
it’s going to happen. Just keep taking it one match at a time, just keep soldiering
on, I guess. Q. You still have the fire? Yeah, absolutely. There’s nothing I did wrong on those match
points. I didn’t do anything wrong. I stayed aggressive. She just literally hit the lines
on some of them. One she hit an ace, un-returnable serve. Like
I literally did everything I could on those match points. It’s not like – yeah, I can’t
say that I choked on those match points. She literally played her best tennis
ever on those shots. I don’t really – I can’t really say that
it’s incredibly painful as opposed to what can I do better, you know, yeah. I think I was honestly playing the best the
first set so far in the tournament. I was serving well. I was just controlling all the
rallies, putting pressure. I was just feeling super confident about this match today. Suddenly, like I said, I just lost it. It
went into my head. I think she improved. It’s always kind of like changing the momentum
sometimes in the tennis. I went little bit down, she went up, that was it. She was serving
well. She had amazing percentage of the first serve. It was really tough to do something. But like I said, I got a chance, and I took
it in the end. Q. Serena just described your level of play
on her match point as crazy and possibly the best she’s ever seen. Do you feel the same? Yeah (laughter). I’m not
going to go against Serena.

    Serena Williams's career with tennis seems to have come to an end, and many wonder that Serena has not won a single championship since she came back from motherhood. What are the reasons for not winning? Is the reason dispersion of mind and conflicting priorities between the factor of aging and between the strong young competitors? or The deterioration of Serena's level is due to the commitment to(Family first as Serena Williams ousted from Australian Open) the education of her beautiful daughter Olympia and looking after her husband ?, where Serena does not find the time for regular hard training in addition to the psychological and physical changes and transformations that affect Serena Williams after Serena became the wife and mother of a beautiful girl .What mentioned above only the questions and observations of Never reduce the greatness of Ms. Serena because Serena has brought us joy and incapacitating in our hearts and our souls for many years, so this is a testimony that Serena Williams is one of the greatest of playing tennis in its history.

    Well all I could say is the great Chris evert mentioned at Wimbledon 2016 that there is 2 years I give to Serena and she can reach Only to 24 so in my opinion if she cannot win one GS outside the US then 100% possibly she end her career at 24 at this US open for sure.
