Even though Rafael Nadal was pushed out in the first round, Serena Williams coasted easily defeating Mandy Minella 6-1, 6-3 to move into the second round of Wimbledon.
This is good for Serena after the last week of controversy surrounding statements against Maria Sharapova and a rape case in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine which caused backlash and a few apologies from Serena. Now the spotlight is back on tennis and she’s focused winning again in the place she won Olympic Gold last year.
“For me, it’s the greatest moment for a tennis player, to walk out on Centre Court. That was such a great moment, too. So many great memories on this court.”
With the spat with Sharapova over, Serena –and the rest of us can get back to the real battle on the tennis courts.
