Serena Williams praised Meghan Markle for the support she received in her US Open final loss to Bianca Andreescu. The American player said: "Meghan is amazing. She literally flew across the seas just to support for a few hours with a newborn baby.
She is the most positive, amazing human that I know. Everyone needs to know how amazing she is. I don’t know if I could have done that with my daughter at that age. But she did it. And that shows the kind of person that she is."
Meanwhile, Kim Clijsters spoke about her return to the WTA Tour. "My mind needs to be empty to left kids at home and go to practice. I have to make sure everything is in order at home and that dinner is ready for the following day.
Our kids have their routines like hobby and school. It will not change, I do not want it. I will just be a bit far away from home. If I feel that one match will cause problems for my children, I will not play. It's just about getting used to it."
Does Clijsters feel she can be at the top again? "Before giving an answer, I have to first face the best players again. In the US Open I thought, No, I cannot reach that level anymore. Because players hit stronger than I used to.
But I had that feeling in the past when I was a top-five player too. I'd like to be around again in early January 2020 in Australia."
