Serena Williams losing to Sofia Kenin surprises me, says Anisimova

In a press conference Amanda Anisimova commented on Serena Williams losing to Sofia Kenin in the French Open third round. Anisimova sort of expected it coming: "There have been so many upsets in this tournament. Anyone can beat anyone in tennis.

Serena, she's tough to beat. That surprises me. In tennis, you never know what might happen." Asked what's her goal in this year's tournament, Anisimova replied: "I'm just taking it one step at a time.

I'm just really happy with the win today and how I fought today. I'm really happy with that. I'm going to let that settle in, and tomorrow I'm just going to go out and practice and hopefully I feel good and ready for the next round."

Anisimova tries to enjoy her game: "I'm still 17, so I try to savor the moment while I'm still young. It's kind of nice. There have been a lot of upsets in this tournament, so that's pretty good. Yeah, no, I feel really great that I have been doing so well at my young age, so, yeah."

On how her season went so far, Anisimova added: "Definitely after Australia I had confidence, but going into clay, I was just looking forward to it. I didn't really have any expectations, because I didn't play on it for such a long time because I missed the clay season last year.

I'm just really happy I got this opportunity to play and I'm really happy that I have been doing well and getting wins on it, doing well in this Grand Slam. It's really nice."
