Serena Williams once again showed her legendary class as she rallied through 3 sets to defeat Aryna Sabalenka on Sunday to reach the Australia Open Quarterfinals, keeping her chase for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title on Track.
She was able to close out the first set with a 6-4 winning.
The second set was no match for her, as she struggled heavily with Aryna Sabalenka heavy punch balls and high return.
The final set took the same pattern as the first, as Serena up her defence game grinding through every ball and winning the big points.
In her post-match win press interview, Serena said:
‘I do get a lot of balls back when I need to. Yeah I didn’t think about my Achilles. It’s so good to not think about it…it’s been a problem actually since 2018, so…I just never want that problem again. It feels really good to just play and to run, to not feel that’
