Patrick Mouratoglou, the coach of American tennis icon Serena Williams, says that Williams was angry after her third round exit at this year's Australian Open. Serena was beaten in the third round of the Australian Open by China's Wang Qiang 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 which ended her hopes of winning her 24th Grand Slam title.
The last time Serena won a Slam was in 2017 at the Australian Open. Since then, she has reached four Grand Slam singles finals but has not been able to reach Slam No. 24. According to Fox Sports Malaysia, Mouratoglou commented, “I completely get that she is angry, I’m disappointed too – it’s normal.
But this is going to help, because for sure she is going to go back to work even harder. She wants to win a grand slam again, she wants to win several if possible. She will work very hard for that and will work hard every single match.
We’re not worried. We just need to understand, find solutions, go back to work – which we will do soon because Serena wants it and we will do everything we can to get it”. Wang, who had lost to Williams in the US Open for the loss of just one game a few months ago, went on to lose to Tunisia's Ons Jabeur in the last 16.
