Speaking on the BBC the seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe commented on Serena Williams' motivation and desire to come back after pregnancy. The American player has reached three Grand Slam finals in the last 12 months.
McEnroe believes Serena has a mental edge over her opponents: "Extremely intimidating. And that is a quality you want to get as a top player because as soon as you walk on the court you feel like you are ahead already or you can pull it out of the bag when you need to.
I think she is so good at that, she's done it so many times. I don't think there's ever been a player that's come back from precarious situations [as much]. Match points down, never seems out of it, never seems to want it less than an opponent.
You have to try and match her effort and desire. You would think the people that haven't won it would want it more than the people who have won 27 times."
