Tennis star, Serena Williams says it’s not over
Despite an early and unexpected exit from the French Open in May, tennis star, Serena Williams says she’s far from done in the world of tennis. Her older sister, Venus still has more to give, too.
”I have no intention of stopping, and I don’t think she does either. We’re definitely connected at the hip,” Serena said. ”I enjoy being out there on the court so much.”
On May 29, Williams took a surprising loss to Virginie Razzano of France who was ranked 111th at the French Open. But she’s back and ready to work for what could be her fifth Wimbledon championship.
”Whether I had won in Paris or lost like I did in the first round, I am always extremely motivated,” she said about that loss. ”If anything, you know, I think losing makes me even more motivated.”
It was 10 years ago when she won both the French Open and Wimbledon back-back-to-back– something no woman has accomplished since.
And now, WIlliams must be itching to get her hands on another trophy. She won her last Grand Slam title two years ago at Wimbledon. After that, a foot injury and a string of health issues kept her out of three consecutive majors.
The only time other in her Grand Slam career that she went more than two years without winning one of the top four events in the sport was between 1999 and 2002.
