In an interview to CNBC the former world No. 1 Monica Seles spoke about the reasons why Serena Williams still keeps playing at a high level at 38 years of age. The American said: "She has an amazing support system around her.
Having Venus there with her has to be a huge comfort, to have a family member alongside you. Her husband seems very supportive and I think for Serena, she loves to compete. It is in her and I just hope she stays healthy and keeps going.
There’s been a lot of downs but she’s a fighter and has been through so much in her life. She has shown us why she’s a champion”. In an interview Angelique Kerber denied that the six-time Major winner Boris Becker will be her new coach.
Becker successfully worked with Novak Djokovic from 2013 to 2016 but he has rejected multiple offers from female players because he does not know the WTA Tour enough. "I do not think it's my solution to coaching. It needs to fit, whatever his name is.
If it's an unknown name but that fits me, then it's what you are looking for", said Kerber, who recently split with the German Rainer Schüttler. “I will take the time to look for a real coach, and I need this time.
I know what it’s all about, I’ve been a part of it for a long time,” said the three-time Grand Slam champion for the temporary waiver of a supervisor. It did not go the way we did, as I imagined. It is important to find myself first, everything starts with me”.
