In an interview to Marca, Serena Williamss coach commented on last years US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka. As you can imagine it was very disappointing for her to reach a final like the New Yorks and lose it.
All the effort she did to comeback on Tour after being a mother are focused on winning Grand Slam titles again. Serena has always been very ambitious. She is not aware that reaching two finals like she did last year is a big achievement.
She is a born competitor. For her winning is what matters. All what happened at the US Open is the past. Champions are used to find solutions in a natural way to keep having success. Since I know her she is trying to be a better player every day.
Whats Serenas secret? There is not an answer to your question. She has a good technique, maybe the best serve of all time. In general, she has a lot of power on all her shots. She is one of the biggest athletes in history, always with a champions winner mentality.
But, especially, she likes to compete. She came back from a lot of tough situations during her career. On splitting with Wim Fissette at the end of last year after winning Wimbledon and reaching Australian Open semifinals, Mouratoglou added: From outside its always difficult to understand a separation when you got results.
I suppose there will be some good reason because no one wants to lose your coach if you are playing well. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
