Serena Williams has beaten Ana Ivanovic 6-3, 6-4 in conditions that were so windy both players were forced to play a conservative match. While Serena’s form continues to improve, the American superstar said that the conditions forced her to play well below her level.
“It was crazy. I didn’t even go for winners at any point. I just tried to get it over because it was so windy. It was like, Wow. It was definitely tough. But you just have to win in all kinds of situations.”
While Ivanovic seems to be slowly working her way into form she is still far from her best and still a long way off really challenging Serena at Grand Slam level despite the fact that Serena recently returned from nearly a year out with injury and illness.
