French Open: Elena Rybakina says: “She is strong, but I was ready” after defeating Serena Williams – Kazakhstani tennis player Yelena Rybakina praised Serena Williams after defeating the 23-time Grand Slam champion 6-3, 7-5 in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday.
The 21-year-old grew up watching Serena on TV and always hoped to meet the legendary American in competition. “I am so pleased with today’s match. It’s hard to expect anything because you are watching on TV, and when you go out on the court and feel the power and all that, it’s completely different. I knew that it would be difficult for me to return to serving, ”Rybakina reflected, blocking the aura of meeting with Serena, which many succumb to.
“She’s strong, but I was ready. Then, after a few points, I felt comfortable, so nothing. “
Moments after the match, Serena hinted that her days at Roland Garros were not over yet.
“Yes, I definitely don’t think about it at all,” Serena said with a smirk when asked if this was her last match on Paris clay. “I’m definitely thinking about other things, but not that.”
“It was definitely close. I’m so close. There is literally a point here, a point that can change the whole course of a match. I am not winning these points. “
The pursuit of the elusive 24th Grand Slam record now moves to Wimbledon for Serena.
“I like to change the surface, but historically I have done well on the grass. I also performed well on clay, – continued the seven-time Wimbledon winner. “Not this season. I dont know. I don’t think I’ll play a warm-up. ”
The 22nd racket of the world, Elena Rybakina, will now fight Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, seeded 31st, in the last eight.
