Tennis star, Serena Williams has opened up on how she felt about her loss to Bianca Andreescu in the 2019 US Open final.
The mother of one lost to the 19-year old who became the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam title on Saturday 7th September, 2019.
Shortly after the loss at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, Serena Williams spoke:
“I think this was the worst match I’ve played all tournament. I can definitely say I’m not really happy, but I have to take it one moment at a time. I honestly didn’t play my best. It’s inexcusable for me to play at that level.”
“I was thinking, OK, Serena, you didn’t miss a serve, you lost serve maybe twice in the whole tournament. And you didn’t hit a first serve in today. How do I play at a level like this in a final?”
Serena Williams who turns 33 next month, revealed that she will remain in tennis towards at least tying with the record of 24 Grand Slam titles won.
“I’m not necessarily chasing a record, I’m just trying to win Grand Slams. I just am still here. I’m still doing what I can do.”
