The American tennis player Serena Williams confessed that “is an honor” have come to earn the same ‘Grand Slam’ Swiss tennis player Roger Federer, she said that “it has been a great champion for many years”. “It is an honor to be at the same level as Roger. It has been a great champion for many years, and is simply an incredible competitor and follows playing still, and you can probably earn even more. So you feel very well still at that same level,” Serena Williams said at the press conference after the party that became the US Open champion.
Although, she didn’t compare with the great myths of women’s tennis. “I can’t compare me with Crissy (Evert) and Martina (Navratilova), still no, because I’m still not there.” No I can’t compare myself with them”, she said. On the possibility of overcoming the ‘big’ titles achieved by the tennis player Steffi Graf, the younger Williams give it importance. “I don’t think about that. I said recently about my age, that I feel very good, I’ve never felt better, I feel very much in form. I can’t play a tournament like this (US Open), in single, double and with difficult schedules. I am very excited about my chances, but I don’t know what can happen. I do not play and do it the best I can”, she stressed.
The American tennis player said to have not been very depressed about having to defend the title. “Well, there’s always pressure to defend a title, but I didn’t feel much, but I knew that I wanted to win. But I think that losing a game before reaching the US Open took me a bit of the pressure that had, so I did a little better,” explained. She also said had been “a bit tense” at the end. “Probably wasn’t the best at that time.” I began to think that she was not playing tennis very intelligently, then, I saw that I had to relax and not do it again, but I did it again. Do not know,” she mused.
