Serena Williams is an inspiration for everyone, says McNally

In an interview the American player Caty McNally spoke about how inspiring Serena Williams is for her. McNally, who will compete in this year's US Open through a wild card invitation, said: “She’s [Serena] an inspiration to everyone.

One thing I admire most is coming back after having a baby. That’s absolutely ridiculous and insane and I respect her a lot for that because she knew she wasn’t ready and she knew she wanted more. She’s still such a good player and she can do so much damage on the tour.

She has so much fight and passion in her. I hit with Venus last week in Cincinnati and that was amazing. She was really chill and a super nice woman”. On her friendship with Cori Gauff who made her breakthrough in Wimbledon earlier this year, McNally added: “Everyone is super happy for each other and it kind of fuels the fire that you can do the exact same thing.

That was amazing. I was really impressed with how she handled herself going out on Centre Court. I’d be pretty nervous I think. I’m sure she was too and she handled the moment amazingly. I’m super proud of her and I think she’s an awesome girl on and off the court. We get along super well. It shows me I can do the same thing, it’s just a matter of time”.
