Additionally, the 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams is aiming to win one more title to make a level with Australia’s Margaret Court, the 24 Grand Slam singles titles winner.
“It Is Difficult To Have 100 Percent Dedication”- Patrick Mouratoglou
Mouratoglou said in an interview with Express sport about Serena’s Top Seed Open participation and US Open 2020 preparation, “She’s doing well. She’s practiced really well and as much as she can. When you have a date for your next tournament, that’s the extra motivation all the players need because they are used to having short-term goals.”
Mouratoglou added, “They all have long-term goals but without short-term goals, it is difficult to have 100 percent dedication. And she is practicing every day, very seriously. When you know you are going to play soon, suddenly you lock-in”.
Furthermore, Serena Williams did not play any matches after the Australian Open third round exit. Additionally, She is going to play in Lexington after a gap of 6 months. For Serena US Open would be the main aim, and playing in Lexington definitely will help her to regain the momentum to exhibit her skills once again in the US Open.
Moreover, Mouratoglou is feeling very positive, and believing these matches in Lexington is a great opportunity for her to play, crucial for the preparation.
He quoted “she also needs those matches like everyone. The ones that have played and have several matches under the belt is such a huge advantage.”
Notably, Mouratoglou has been coaching Serena Williams since 2012, and so far, she has won 10 Grand slam titles under his coaching.
Moreover, Serena Williams is playing at the Top Seed Tennis Club in Lexington, along with her sister Venus, Sloane Stephens, Victoria Azarenka, Coco Gauff, and Amanda Anisimova. The tournament will help her to warm-up before the US Open.
