Following a shock straight set loss today in the third round to Karolina Pliskova, former World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic talked about Serena Williams’s chase for 18 career Grand Slams.
“I think it’s amazing achievement,” Ivanovic said. “I think she has even potential to break the record. She has a big game. It just shows how consistent she is and how good she is. I think in women’s tennis we are lucky to have someone like her, someone people can look up to and be inspired by it.”
She was then asked to compare Serena with Roger who is also gunning for an 18th Grand Slam title this week.
“Serena has such a powerful game,” she said. “On the other hand, Roger, he, as well. He also plays very elegant. You know, it’s very enjoyable to watch him.”
