Serena Williams Loses In 2020 Australian Open
The last time China’s Wang Qiang played Serena Williams in a grand slam, she was crushed in just 44 minutes, at the US Open.
Qiang didn’t let that get to her at the Australian Open, however, as she defeated the 23-time major champion Williams 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 to earn her place in the 4th round.
I think my team always believes I can do it
“Yes I think my team always believes I can do it,” said Wang
“You know after the last time (US Open 2019) I do really hard work on the court and off the court so I think it’s really good work, yes, I believe I can do it.
“I don’t know, during the second set I was a little bit confused because I lost the second set.
“I have to be calm, yes, my mind always told me I had to focus on the court and trust myself.”
Serena’s quest to tie Margaret Court’s grand slam record of 24-majors goes on, but is time running out for the 38-year-old American?
“I was optimistic I would be able to win,” Williams said,
“I thought, OK, now finish this off. I honestly didn’t think I was going to lose that match.”
“I mean, personally I made a lot of errors,” Williams admitted.
“I didn’t hit any of those shots in New York or in general in a really long time. So that’s good news.
“I just made far too many errors to be a professional athlete today.”
“Yeah, you know, I feel like I’m on the way up, so we’ll see,” she said. “I don’t know. I’m not even thinking about anything, about not being here.” Serena said when asked about being back down under in 2021.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
