In a press conference in Rome, Karolina Pliskova was asked if Serena Williams should play more tournaments in order to be able to win a Grand Slam title again. The Czech said: "I guess she knows what she's doing. I think she's doing this for a couple of years already.
Her age, she's not 20, so of course, she cannot play maybe that much as she was playing before. But I think she can win a Grand Slam without playing any other tournaments." Pliskova also commented on how tennis evolved over the years: "I think the tennis is starting to be much faster right now.
I'm not sure if there's really a possibility for this game. But, of course, she was capable of doing that. Of course, you need to have I think huge talent, you need to move well. You need to have couple of things together to be playing this tennis.
I mean, the last match when I beat her, I think it was too fast for her already. I think because everything is moving, everything is getting better, faster, everybody is just a little bit stronger, I think it's tough to play this kind of tennis right now.
When you see all the winners, everybody has the power to play. It's not much about the touch or the skills, it's more about the power I think now", she concluded.
