Tough task for Roger Federer, Serena Williams to win Majors at 38 - McEnroe

Speaking on Eurosport the seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe commented on Bianca Andreescu's US Open women's final win over Serena Williams. The American former player said: "I am more than surprised. But Andrescu proved she is a big match player, tactically very smart, hits big balls.

She stepped in. She will win multiple Majors. I'd say 99 percent of the players would have lost when Serena won four games from 5-1 second set but Andreescu stayed there." On Williams's chances to win more Majors, McEnroe added: "I think Serena still has time.

She will play next year trying to pass Margaret Court and winning the Olympic medal. To me she is already the greatest player ever. It's tough because you have to win seven matches at the best of five sets. For both Serena and Roger Federer, we expect too much from them, we ask too much."

Mats Wilander praised Andreescu: "That's insane. She is gonna win more on any surface. I cannot imagine her winning on clay because of her forehand. But Serena looked tired. These young ladies move so well and hit so hard and Serena struggles with them.

It's the worse she has ever served. It's nerves because when she serves bad, she is more nervous." Both McEnroe and Wilander will be back on the Tour as commentators in the Australian Open.
