Serena Williams is back on the tennis court for the first time since a very successful summer during which she won Wimbledon, the Olympic gold medal and then the US Open. Speaking to the press ahead of the WTA Champions in Istanbul on Monday, after all the injuries, illnesses and incidents Serena said she’s changed her attitude on tennis.
“I think I love the moment being on court,” Serena said. “I love walking out and seeing‑‑ I love winning, just to be honest. My attitude probably has changed a little bit. For the most part, I love being out there. It’s definitely work, but it’s a great moment to do something that you love so much, and to be able to do it, like I always say, halfway decent.”
Serena has won six titles this year and against Top 5 players this season she’s a perfect 11-0.
Serena began her bid for a third WTA Championships title yesterday with a resounding win over Angelique Kerber 64, 61. This meets Li Na in a match that just began.
(EDIT: So much for winning, she’s down 4-1 in the first set!)
