Quest for 24 over as Serena Williams knocked out of Roland-Garros by Elena Rybakina
Serena Williams is out of the French Open, beaten 6-3, 7-5 by Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybakina. The 21-year-old served with accuracy and poise and held her nerve to eliminate the 23-time Grand Slam champion
Elena Rybakina got the biggest win of her young career so far as she knocked Serena Williams out of Roland-Garros, 6-3, 7-5.
Unsurprisingly, Williams was not particularly talkative in her press conference.
“I got some good matches in here,” she reflected. “I did not have the best clay court season, but, yeah, it was good to finally get some wins on clay.”
She rejected the idea that she had any regrets about her performance against Rybakina, but did admit that she would have liked to do things differently.
“Yeah, I think I would have just played harder and played better,” she said. “I don’t know. Just played, I don’t know, better, I guess? I hate regretting, though. But I definitely would have just tried to do that.”
