Serena Williams Absolutely Clear About Her Success and Longevity

by Dusan Randjelovic

Serena Williams has reacted to recent criticism by clearly declaring the reason for her longevity and success. The 38-year old tennis legend stated hard work to be the key factor behind her fruitful career.

“A lot of players or a lot of coaches tell me that Serena is so lucky. She doesn’t train. She just shows up and wins matches. God, if I could do that, I would. Oh, I would do it. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I think the older you get, the more fit you have to get to continue competing. I’m excited about it because I love being fit,” Serena Williams said.

Serena Williams: “The older I get, the better I serve”

The American admitted that age did help her to improve her serve.

“The older I get, the better I serve, I feel, and the more ‑ not I rely on it ‑ but the more I like to hit aces. But in my whole career, I’ve hit a lot of aces throughout the tournaments and stuff,” she said.

“I don’t know how it got better. I really don’t know. It’s not like I go home and I work on baskets and baskets of serves. Maybe it’s a natural shot for me.”

Serena was also asked to name a loss during her career which helped her learn the most.

“In 1998 I played Sanchez in the French Open, and I really believe I should have won that match. I was up, and I didn’t take a chance. That’s life in general. Sometimes you have to take chances,” Williams finished.
