Serena Williams reacts to impressive Eugenie Bouchard win

Serena Williams reacts to impressive Eugenie Bouchard win

Williams' on-court looks have become a topic of conversation, especially after French Open president Bernard Giudicelli criticized her outfit from the tournament in 2018.

Standing next in the 23-time grand slam champion's way is 18-year-old Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska, who upset 23rd seed Carla Suarez Navarro to reach the third round of a slam for the first time. "And I understand that that's normal, but - and these are years I'll never get back", she said.

"So it's just so cool that I'll be able to share the court with her and an opportunity to see how I compare to one of the best players". What's interesting is that she teamed the outfit with fishnet stockings that are nearly invisible should one see her from a little far. "I work hard", Williams said.

She also explained why taking time to be with her daughter, 1-year-old Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., is so important to her. "Other athletes have done that surgery and come back to do their sport - I don't know how successfully or at what level they're playing at", Jamie Murray, 32, said. Bidding for an eighth Melbourne Park crown, few are betting against Williams despite her lowly seeding and she next faces Canadian Eugenie Bouchard who eased past China's Peng Shuai. Sharapova ended up beating Dart, 6-0, 6-0, in their first match. "I think a young generation playing against an experienced legend is wonderful". There is no-one more accomplished in women's singles tennis than Serena Williams.

In a ruthless showing, Williams broke serve six times and cracked 20 winners - double that of Bouchard - but said it wasn't as easy as the score suggested. She completed the match in 1:10. We saw Serena don a catsuit on her return to the court at Roland Garros after a maternity break. "When I was eight I already realized what is going on". He understands, I understand, what we're going through.

Williams responded in dominant fashion, however, and did not drop another game on her way to ending the match with a drive-volley victor. Over the course of the media conference, Williams also dished on the type of boss she is - "hands-on, involved, opinionated but open to suggestions" - why she believes she can "do it all" and how motherhood has taught her to delegate.
