Serena Williams admitted yesterday after a second round robin win at the WTA Championships in Istanbul that she doesn’t care much for playing WTA events after the US Open.
“I have always traditionally ended my year after the Open,” Serena said Wednesday. “You guys are lucky that I was able to make it out two tournaments. That’s like a record for me. I love that the season is getting, you know, getting shorter and shorter.”
Serena has wrapped up No. 1 and with 10 titles including Beijing a few weeks ago, she’s still thirsty for more success.
“I’m definitely motivated,” she said. “I don’t want to come all this way to not do well, and, you know, I have a tough draw, so I just have to do the best I can.”
Serena has won 12 straight matches at the year-end WTA event. Today she’ll face Petra Kvitova for top spot in the Red group.
