After a near perfect second half of 2012, Serena Williams has high goals for the new season. Speaking after an easy Brisbane first round win over Varvara Lepchenko, Serena said she’s the thought of winning the 2013 calendar Slam.
“I think for me, absolutely,” she said of possibility of winning all four. “I think maybe whoever wins will Australian Open will have that same thought. I think there is no way that Victoria or Maria or maybe some other players don’t feel the same way. So I think I definitely feel that way.”
The World No. 3 swept Wimbledon, the Olympics, the US Open and the year-end WTA Championships to prove she’s unquestionably the best in the game.
“If I have a year like I had last year, or 2012, I should say, it would be exciting and I would be really happy for that as well,” she said. “Obviously I would like to do better namely at Roland Garros and at the Australian Open, too. So we’ll see.”
Despite all her recent domination, she still thinks there’s areas in her game which need improvement.
“Honestly, I think I can do better on my serve,” she admitted. “Basic serve returns I think I can do better and play better on that. I always like to feel like I can improve all around, from movement to hitting less unforced errors, which I think I’ve been trying to do.”
Serena will next play Alize Cornet in the second round at Brisbane.
