Serena Williams won’t break Grand Slam record-Todd Woodbridge

Published

on

Serena Williams will not break Margaret Court’s Grand Slam record of 24 major titles, Australian tennis great Todd Woodbridge has predicted after her US Open exit.

Williams lost in the semi-finals to Victoria Azarenka at Flushing Meadows, in a tournament field depleted by COVID-19 concerns.

 

Turning 39 this month, Williams has 23 Grand Slam titles but has struggled to reach Court’s record. She has lost her past four major finals and hasn’t won a Slam since becoming a mother in 2017.

Having watched her in action at the US Open, Woodbridge doesn’t believe that he American great will surpass Court.

The elusive 24th title is certainly haunting Serena. Coming back from her pregnancy, she has been unable to find the extra fuel to rake up a win in a final. The US Open 2020 had seemed like the perfect opportunity to touch the record. She did really well to get into the semi-finals and was the favorite going into her match against Victoria Azarenka.

 

Azarenka, on the other hand, had never beaten Serena in a Grand Slam. So, the odds were certainly in favor of Serena. However, Azarenka pulled off a stunning display of tennis to break Serena’s dream of stepping into the final. Although she lost to Naomi Osaka in the final, her fight was an extraordinary one.

“Victoria Azarenka took her out there in the semis [of the US Open]. What’s started to happen to the game for Serena, if she can’t belt the opponents off the court and win those points quickly … she won that first set in great form against Azarenka but once she started to get moving across the baseline, she doesn’t have the defence that she used to have.

 

“She doesn’t move quite as well as she used to. Given the age and all of those things that’s to be expected.

“It’s going to be really hard. She’s supposed to be going to Paris, I don’t know that it’s going to happen in Paris for her.

 

Serena Williams is expected to take part in the French Open next. Will her quest for 24th Slam end there or not? Only time will tell.
