Yesterday was not the day we wanted for Serena; we all wanted her to win but reaching the finals is not an easy feat and such an achievement regardless.
Canadian, Bianca Andreescu was competing in the main draw of the US Open for the first time and won 6-3, 7-5
Follong the match, Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena’s coach shared on Instagram: “I am so proud of her and what she is able to achieve”
“Sport can be ruthless.
You always have the choice to look at the glass half full or half empty.
Serena has lost the last 4 Grand Slam finals but she has also reached 4 Grand Slam finals not even 2 years after becoming a mother, being almost 38 years old. This is an incredible achievement even though the goal is to win tournaments.
I am so proud of her and what she is able to achieve.
Now there is always the option to give up, advised by those who let their frustration rule their opinions. The other option is to continue the fight for winning other majors. It is a deep plain to work so hard, give it all, and fail. One of the Champion’s quality is to never give up whatever they go through until they reach their goal. Serena is the Ultimate Champion.”
Fans poured in with positive words of encouragment and advice for Serena under his post:
There’s still alot of drive and power in Serena’s tank. We hope she comes back stronger and breaks through for her much anticipated 24th grand slam.
