fbpx Wimbledon: Barbora Strycova Confident Of Victory Against Serena Williams | The Beat 99.9 FM

 

Promising Czech tennis player, Barbora Strycova, takes on the seven-time champion, Serena Williams, after Simona Halep plays Elina Svitolina. She spoke confidently about her upcoming match with Williams.

 

"Of course, I don't have as much power as Serena, but I have other weapons. I was playing at home against the wall, against the house, so I was kind of like playing with it, I love to play volleys, especially on grass. It's working very well. When I'm confident, I like to play a lot of balls from the net. It's my territory," said Strycova.

 

Strycova is, though, the overwhelming underdog against Williams, who is chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title and her first as a mother. But Strycova, who says her granddad took her to see the Wimbledon trophies in the museum as a two-year-old, is not dwelling on that record or Williams' success here.

 

"When you go out there, you just focus on yourself and you focus how to beat that opponent, the way you want to beat her," she said. "So I am not really scared to play her. I just really will try my best and I will fight as much as I can."
