Serena Williams battles it out

Serena Williams battled it out against an 18-year-old Slovenian. After losing the first game, Williams pulled up her socks and took the match to 2-6 6-2 6-4.

Williams, 37, is playing to win the eighth Wimbledon title. In 2016, she took a break from the game to have a baby.  The tennis player needs one more grand slam victory to equal Margaret Court’s unbreakable record of 24.

Juvan won the first set of the match.
She told the reporter, “I just have to remember that I’m best at closing matches, I’m good at it. It’s just experience and match play. In the past two years, I haven’t played a lot of matches. I’m just trying to kind of get that back.”

Today, Williams will play mixed doubles with two times Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. In 2017 Murray had hip surgery and is now looking forward to playing in the court.

She said, “Actually I’m curious, too. I’m going to be so happy when I go out there, it’s going to be really cool. Andy is a great player like I said. I think he is mentally one of the toughest players out there.”

Wins and losses in Wimbledon

Defending champion Angelique Kerber is out of Wimbledon. She lost the second to Lauren Davis. The three-time grand slam champion lost 6-2 2-6 1-6 to the 95th-ranked Davis.

Kerber told reporters, “I was trying to finding my game the whole match actually. I was not really feeling good from the beginning. I don’t know why, I mean, the energy was not there. Of course I’m disappointed. It’s not the way I would like to finish here or to play here. But you have sometimes days like that. You have to accept it. You have to learn from it, trying to forgot this as soon as possible.”
Davis will now play against Carla Suárez Navarro on Saturday.
