Serena Williams meets Margarita Gasparyan, in the first round of the Wimbledon 2015 tournament!
It`s been a great year for Serena Williams, she has won for the first time two Grand Slam in a row and now she is preparing for the Year Grand Slam, at Wimbledon, in her opening campaign against Margarita Gasparyan, today at the Wimbledon 2015, opening round.
If Serena manages to maintain her top performance as she did untill now and win this Wimbledon edition together with defending her US Open trophy if I`m not mistaking, she will be the first woman in the last 27 years to win major titles in the same year, a total of four. In the same hypothetical position in the history of female tennis, actually achieving those results, there was Steffi Graf, Margaret Court and Maureen Connolly.
Anyways, we all know Serena, she will take everything as it comes without rushing anything and playing each game with alot of discipline, attribute that made her who she is today. Just like she will meet her first opponent in this first round of Wimbledon campaign and as everything is a first, is also the first time Gasparyan meets Serena Williams on the tour, considering the fact that she has spent most of her time playing on the ITF Tour. About that, the russian, right handed player, has declared that Wimbledon is more like having fun, because she hasn`t much to defend, having nothing to lose either, even the last years she was sent home in early stages of the tournament, so she`s relaxed or at least so she said.
Unlike Gasparyan, Serena Williams is not talking about winnig Wimbledon only, but she`s looking to win all four Grand Slams events of the year, or at least three of them, completing her “Serena Slam”. She said that for now she doesn`t feel these tasks very stressful and maybe she will feel more agitated after Wimbledon, if she would win the competition. For now she`s stress free, very focused and determined to obtain great results, considering that she didn`t get the trophy since 2012.
Serena Williams entered this tournament as hot favourite and it`s obvious that she is the same for this opening match against youngster Margarita Gasparyan, the 113th ranked qualifier.
