“I got some good matches in here,” Williams told the press, after the match. “I did not have the best clay-court season, but it was good to finally get some wins on clay.”
“It was definitely close,” Williams said, regarding her match against Rybakina. “There is literally a point here, a point there, that could change the whole course of the match. I’m not winning those points. That literally could just change everything. “
Serena Williams came into the French Open with a deficiency of claycourt practice. She has lost two of her three matches on the surface in 2021. She was targeting an all-time record-equalling 24 Grand Slam singles titles. She is one short of Margaret Court’s mark. Since her return after maternity leave, the 39-year-old has taken part in four finals but has failed to reach the elusive number 24.
Rybakina entered the contest with straight-set victories in all three rounds and her victory over Serena Williams makes her a contender for the French Open 2021 title.
