Serena Williams Went For Grand Slam Title No. 24 At This Year’s U.S. Open!
Serena Williams, at the age of 38, went all-in for the Grand Slam Title No. 24 at the U.S. Open 2020. She is in such a position where every match she plays should be considered as unexpected.
Serena played exceptionally well in the U.S. Open semi-final. She played in such a manner that, for a moment, it looked as if she is going to win. But, no. This time Serena is not going to win her envied U.S. Open. In the semi-final, Williams lost to Vika Azarenka by 1-6, 6-3, 6-3. But she gave her best to beat it.
This year reaching the semi-final has been challenging for Williams. Her game was not up to the mark in the U.S. Open and two other tournaments. That is why the semi-final on Thursday seemed an exceptional performance. She seemed extraordinarily determined and devoted at the beginning of the match. She played aggressively and also she hit the ball too hard. It actually seemed that with each ground stroke, she was throwing her body. She played in such a manner as if she had nothing to lose.
Serena has been playing for more than 20 years, and she almost achieved everything that she envied. And the fact has to be acknowledged that she is not that much physically fit as she was 20 years ago. But to defeat a strong opponent and to win another Grand Slam, one needs to be confident and also professional.
William played all the three sets in the semi-final with consistency. She was doing quite well, but the opponent Azarenka figured out her technique and easily absorbed it. And hence, Azarenka won the semi-final game.
