Mouratoglou and Serena Williams' partnership coming to end? It could be possible, at leat according The Coach's Instagram profile: Mouratoglou has removed Serena Williams' coach wording from his Instagram profile. Serena does not play a tenis match from Wimbledon 202 against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, when she, after a slip on the still fresh grass, she cost the American star to retire due to the aggravation of the knee problem and did not allow her to complete even the first set.
At the end of 2021 the tennis player announced that she will not take part in the Australian Open, as she is not yet physically ready. Following this decision she slipped in the WTA rankings to 244th place at the end of January.
Now the question, on the eve of the double WTA event between Indian Wells and Miami, on the American hard-courts, is clear: is Serena and Mouratoglou's road going to part ways? And if anything, for what reason? Why is Serena deciding to retire or why does she perhaps need something new to try to win a Grand Slam before the end of her sporting career? Such an element, posted by the French coach, will raise doubts and questions that will have to be answered in the next few days.
Serena Williams: "If I had done like Zverev, I would be in jail"
Speaking during an interview with CNN, Serena Williams talked thus about the exploits of Alexander Zverev, current number 3 in the world rankings. Here are her statements: "I have no doubt that there is a different and double attitude.
If I had done what Zverev did last week, I would be in jail now. I'm not kidding, but far from it. When you see things like that on the circuit you think about what would have happened if it had been me instead of him. I don't want to think about it and I prefer not to talk about it, but this is my opinion." In 2018 a similar situation occurred with Serena who raged badly against the chair judge and in this regard I commented: "At the end of the day I am this.
I like who I am and I like the impact I have had on people in my career. I've been a source of inspiration to so many people, especially women and people of color. If I didn't have this passion, I wouldn't have done anything I did, not even off the tennis court.
Despite my age, I still have a great bond with tennis and I show it more and more every day." During his career, the German tennis player Alexander Zverev has often been attacked for his sometimes exaggerated behavior. Off the court he has been accused of harsh accusations of domestic abuse by his ex-girlfriend and sometimes things don't get better on the pitch.
Last week, Sascha was engaged in the doubles of the Acapulco tournament, and at one point, after a verbal confrontation with the chair judge, he started hitting the chair where the referee was sitting, even touching the poor victim.
On the same day, the Mexican tournament disqualified Zverev from the tournament, not only in the doubles but also in the singles tournament. Several people have criticized this decision saying it was too mild. This is the case of the American champion Serena Williams, considered by many to be the greatest tennis player of all time. The winner of 23 Grand Slam titles once again focused on the differences that occur in sport between men and women.
