Serena Williams is all set to make a thumping comeback to the tennis arena. She would take on Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan in the second round of the Miami Masters Tennis Tournament tomorrow.
Serena has lifted the trophy 6 times in Miami which suggest how much she loves this place. She has rarely put up a poor show here.
When asked about the upcoming tournament, the world no. 1 said, “I have got a lot of fans over here and I would like to put up some good performances for them. It’s a great venue. I feel wonderful coming here.”
This season hasn’t been a great one for Serena till now. Barring the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in which she went all the way, she has been pretty average. Her fitness also has a lot to do with that.
But, now, she seems to be 100% ready to rule again.
When asked about the situation of her back, the American superstar said, “I have received treatments on it in the last couple of weeks and right now, it’s not bothering me.”
In the recent times, Serena has started being considered as one of the greatest who have ever played the game of tennis and thus, the expectations from her have increased. But, according to her, she doesn’t find herself under any extra pressure because of those expectations.
When asked about the expectations, Serena said, “The pressure is certainly there. If I win, it’s not big news, but, if I get defeated even once, it becomes a big story, but, I have learnt to deal with it. It will always be like this until I keep playing. So, it’s better not to think about it that much.”
Serena has lifted more than 50 singles trophies in her career.
