Serena Williams has been on Tour for two decades. The American player was asked what was the toughest era she has ever played in. "It's hard to say," admitted Williams. "I have to say, Venus. Obviously, I lost to her the most.
She's won the most Grand Slams in that era. I don't know. I mean, probably Henin and Clijsters were great. Probably? They were really great. But then there's Lindsay, also an amazing player. Very tough to play against. You know, Hingis was also an incredibly tough opponent to play.
The list goes on and on. There's so many amazing players throughout so many years. Yeah, it's a lot. It is a lot." On her fitness trainer Mackie Shilstone, Serena said: "I always work with Mackie. He doesn't always come to all the events.
We always work together. I put a lot of time in the gym after Wimbledon, like I said, getting ready for Canada. Yeah, I put a ton of time in. Worked a lot on my fitness. It always feels good to train without pain." Williams lost to Bianca Andreescu in the final of the US Open last week.
It was her fourth Major final loss since returning to the Tour after her maternity leave. Last year, she had lost the US Open final to Naomi Osaka.
