World No. 2 Simona Halep and former World No. 1 Serena Williams spoke about the intimidation factor of facing tennis legend Serena Williams on the court, during a recent podcast for Eurosport. Halep, who defeated Williams in the Wimbledon final last year, said, "I was always afraid of her." Henin, who finished her career with a 6-8 record against Williams, commented, "You had to play against Serena and Venus came to the court entrance with her.
So it wasn't just one, you had to play against two”. Here is a look at the video where the two champions speak about the prospect of facing the 23-time Grand Slam champion.
