I have to help Serena Williams to deal with expectations, says coach

Serena Williams lost all the four Grand Slam finals she has played in including the most recent one against Bianca Andreescu in the US Open. Speaking to Daily Mail Serena' coach Patrick Mouratoglou said he feels confident looking to the future.

‘She’s playing one match for history. This is just a little bit of pressure. She plays someone who is young, has nothing to lose, with zero pressure. That’s why these matches are difficult to win. Of course, my job is top help her find a solution to win the finals.

For sure, I have to help her deal better with her expectations. But it’s important for people to understand how pressure is something difficult to deal with.' Chelsea Clinton spoke about Serena Williams's legacy in tennis and off it.

Clinton said: "I have loved watching Serena champion equal pay for women, athletes and nonathletes alike. I shared her fabulous open letter in November 2016 with friends and on social media...She is a role model, for all of us and for our daughters and sons."

Clinton also praised Venus: "I was lucky enough to cheer for the Williams sisters in person during the 2000 Olympics and at multiple Grand Slam matches in the years since. I'm always inspired by their focus on the court and their support for each other there and everywhere else."

Serena is likely to end her season and compete again in 2020 when she will prepare ahead of the Australian Open at the ASB Classic in Auckland.
