The president of the WTA, the Dutch Micky Lawler, was convinced that the American Serena Williams can still achieve a new Grand Slam title and equal the twenty-four that the legendary Margaret Court has.
“Yes. Serena is capable of anything. Serena should never be ruled out. She is a phenomenon of athlete and also humanly. She has achieved so much and so much that if she retires tomorrow she could not complain about the career she has had. And we will have I must be grateful to him for everything he has done for women’s tennis, “said Lawler in an interview with the EFE Agency in which he highlighted the facilities provided by the Mexican city of Guadalajara to host the WTA Finals.
The American Serena Williams, 40, has 23 Grand Slam, although the last was at the Australian Open in 2017. She is just one behind the Australian Margaret Court, who dominated women’s tennis in the 1960s and 70s.
“If she wins that last Grand Slam and equals Margaret Court’s record, it’s also historic. And this is the positive of everything. That we can’t really lose anything in any case and neither can she. It won’t surprise me if she wins, obviously.” Lawler insisted.
