The woman’s unstoppable. Fresh off of her historic wins during the 2012 Summer Olympics, Serena beat out Sara Errani today…placing the multi gold medalist in the finals at the U.S. Open.
In interviews on the court during and after the match, Serena let us know that she was trying her best to stay calm and collected the whole time.
“Well, I did grunt once today, and I thought, `God, I hope I don’t lose the point,” Williams said. “Like I said, my goal this year was not to get in any fights.”"It’s really awesome,” Williams said in an on-court interview. “That is what I wanted, and what I dreamed of, all year.”
Her opponent Sara Errani wasn’t too happy with her failed match:
The latest woman to absorb a lopsided loss against Serena Williams thinks the 14-time Grand Slam champion should take on a new challenge.
“Given that men are always quick to say women are a lot worse … I’d love to see her play in a (lower-level) men’s tournament and see how they deal with her. It’s easy to talk. On the court, it would be different,” the 10th-seeded Sara Errani said.
“I’ve practiced with a lot of guys ranked 400th or 500th,” Errani explained. “I’ve never played with a man who hits as hard as she does.”
“She’s not unbeatable. No one is unbeatable. Anyone can lose. But if she plays well, she’s the best in the world,” Errani said. “It’s stressful against her. She puts a lot of pressure on you. You need to play quickly. You don’t have even a tiny chance to control a point the way you would want to.”
Big ups to Serena and the dope year of wins she’s had.
