It’s another win for Serena Williams at Wimbledon. She defeated Victoria Azarenka 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 earlier today at Centre Court. Congrats to Serena!!
I was somewhat nervous after the first set but you know Serena. She always seems to make a comeback.
LONDON — Even as Serena Williams piled up aces and groundstroke winners from all angles, even as she stormed through seven games in a row and 10 of the last 13 in yet another comeback, her Wimbledon quarterfinal against Victoria Azarenka never felt like a runaway.
That’s because Azarenka, a two-time major champion and former No. 1 in her own right, was playing spectacular tennis, too, nearly the equal of Williams in every facet.
For when Williams finds her best game, she becomes unbeatable. And for her past 26 Grand Slam matches she is, indeed, unbeaten. Erasing an early deficit at Centre Court, Williams got past Azarenka 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 Tuesday with the help of 17 aces and a remarkable ratio of 46 winners to 12 unforced errors.
Again I refused to touch my remote. I was determined to sit through the entire match no matter how nervous I was. I did a lot of yelling at the television today. That’s something I usually do when I’m watching the Washington Redskins on tv 😉
Next up for Serena is Maria Sharapova on Thursday. Listening to her loud grunting during her match with CoCo Vandeweghe got on my last nerve. I was rooting for CoCo.
Good luck Serena.
