Serena Williams’ former coach thinks she can win the US Open
Rick McKee, the former coach of 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, believes the athlete has a chance to win the US Open in 2022. The American has previously stated her intention to play in the tournament.
“If Serena wants to win at the US Open, she has to dedicate herself completely and get herself in terrific shape. You don’t lose talent, you just lose fitness. Then your confidence will come back to you once you start playing. She just needs to get used to wins and losses. She is probably the best athlete in any women’s sport we have ever seen. Serena is like a pit bull, once she grabs you, she won’t let go. She’s a fierce competitor,” McKee.
On the night of June 28-29, Williams, 40, lost to Frenchwoman Armony Tan in the first round of Wimbledon (5-7, 6-1, 6-7 (7-10)).
The US Open will be held from August 29 to September 11, 2022.
