While Serena is clearly not invincible like she used to be during most of her career, she is not demotivated by that. She was aggressive as usual and was playing good tennis for someone who is 40 years old and is playing after a year-long gap.
During the post-match conference, Serena made it clear that the game has only motivated her to practice harder. As per her, she was not too bad and could improve through practice. Moreover, the American legend said, “It definitely makes me want to hit the practice courts because you’re playing not bad and you’re so close.”
