Serena Williams has similar mentality to Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer: Perez

Estela Perez is one of Spain's most promising players. In an interview with Mundo Deportivo, she spoke about her origins: "My parents went to the tennis club of Real Madrid and they are also members at the Bernabeu, and of course, Real Madrid fans.

The sport was always in my family. My eldest sister studies in the United States, the other (is in) architecture and the other (is an) engineer. My parents are very strict with us and they always told us to give our best. I think that making our best effort was what we always wanted to do.

I am studying at Miami University by AGM Sports which makes it easier because they change your exams. You have to organize yourself, be disciplined, know what your priorities are. I think that's the most important thing. I improved my tennis a lot, I play fast.

They changed some of my shots but what changed the most is my desire to win." She is a Serena Williams fan: "I like her game style a lot, how aggressive she is. She has a similar mentality as Nadal and Federer, I see her heading into a match like, 'Here I am', and so she wins.

I also like a lot how Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza move. I like Ashleigh Barty's slice backhand." Nadal will take a rest following his 12th French Open title as he will not play in Queen's or Halle before playing Wimbledon.
