Serena Williams vs Aliaksandra Sasnovich
June 29, 2021 11:45 am EDT
Serena Williams (6) meets Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the first round of the 2021 Championships on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Serena Williams start the campaign for no.24 off strongly here by showing us that she is at her best when she is on grass, or will Aliaksandra Sasnovich add her name to the list of players who have stopped no.24 from happening for a very long time?
Aliaksandra Sasnovich will come out here knowing she is not playing her best tennis, and knowing she is going to have one of the toughest challenges out there as she is in the tough side of the draw. She will have to beat the best womens player of all time in Serena Williams if she wants to progress any further here in London, and this can either be nervewracking for some players or seen as a great challenge and an opportunity for others. How will Sasnovich take this challenge on in London?

Serena Williams loves playing on grass and having looked at her training she has been preparing a lot for Wimbledon. Serena knows that she has to be at her absolute best as she has not really been able to over the last year or so, but on grass she always has a chance to make it further than anyone. She is the best grass player out of anyone in the draw, but what is letting her down recently is her stamina as she is getting older and older and it is becoming harder for her to be able to play tough match after tough match.
This is going to be the 1st meeting between both players, and I don’t see Aliaksandra taking this challenge on as an opportunity. I see Aliaksandra coming into this match very nervous and not be able to get much going here. Serena Williams does not want to waste time against lesser opponents so early as she needs to save time to recover faster and have more energy for important matches. At her age, this starts right now, and Serena will get this job done in straight sets.
