Serena-Williams--009

LONDON –   Top seed Serena Williams completed her impeccable first-round record and took another step towards the Grand Slam with a convincing triumph at Wimbledon having a 6-4, 6-1 scores against the world number 113 Russian qualifier Margarita Gasparyan. The first round was not stress-free as Gasparyan broke serve in the opening game and led with 3-1 scores. While crowd’s favorite 33 year old Serena Williams finally discovered Margarita’s rhythm she did not give Gasparyan another chance.

She played really good. Serena Williams also thought that she is losing again as Margarita came out so fast but Williams did not let it to happen. This is Serena Williams’ 17th first-round singles win at Wimbledon, with her no losses record at this stage.

Everyone is excited to watch their favorite Tennis player perform in Rome when world’s number one defending champion, Serena Williams suddenly announced her withdrawal from the Italian Open on Thursday before her face off with fellow American Christina McHale in round three and her fans were truly sad and worried. The reason for withdrawing?

It’s because of her elbow injury. The champion said the injury first affected her at last week’s Madrid Open, where she lost to Petra Kvitova in the semis. She was like serving only 40% of her control and not serving the best and all she thinks is to be able to have a serve and hit the shots with assurance. Last year was terrible, Serena took five days off and practice for just one day or two before the tournament and that was not a good and healthy idea to face a competition.

According to the champion, this is now a good and right decision for the future as she does not want to do the same mistakes again as last year. She does not want her injury to get worse and have a problem during her next game. Our victor, Serena Williams guaranteed that she will prepare and give her 100% next time as she is smarter now and will not let anything ruin her strategies.
