In the first round of the Roland Garros 2021, on the Philippe Chatrier court, Serena Williams qualified for the second round of the Parisian Slam, not by shining, but by winning as only the champions can do. The American rebels against a faded performance and the climax of the match against Irina Camelia Begu lies in the 4 points in a row, obtained with anger and with class, which allow Serena to cancel two set points at the tie break of the first set and transform the 4-6 in the 8-6 with a lot of final scream.
The second set quickly becomes little more than a pass for Williams who puts two breaks between himself and the Romanian and closes the question at 6-2. In the second round, the American champion, on the hunt for the 24th Slam title that would equal her at Maragaret Court, will face another Romanian, Buzarnescu.
