Kenin consumes an American 'Serenicide' in Paris

Sofia Kenin eliminated her compatriot and 23 Grand Slams winner, Serena Williams, who is again unable to match the Australian Margaret Court.


Pocos, very few, expected that Serena Williams fell eliminated this Saturday at Roland Garros. And it was her compatriot Sofia Kenin, 20-year-old tennis player and 35th in the world who grew up idolizing the winner of 23 Grand Slams, who consummated a US Serenicide in Paris: 6-2 and 7-5 in 1h: 32.

The ex-number one of the world, who has been fighting since she returned to play after being mother to equal the record of 24 great titles of the Australian Margaret Court, will not be able to do it in France after this enormous disappointment for her and for many experts who saw her as winner. "Serena is always Serena," said Eurosport ex-commentator and commentator Kim Clijsters a few days ago. But the fact is that the strategy of reducing the number of tournaments in his calendar, which worked for most of his career, now does not do so well, because he has not yet been able to recover his physical fullness. "I'm very far, the optimistic part is that it's because I have not been on the track for a long time," he said after the game.

There is still tennis, but his rivals know how to tickle him and demand it to a limit where He loses patience and makes many mistakes (34 this time). Kenin secured his punches and was able to break four times the powerful service of Williams, who threatened to come back in the second set, but was half-hearted. Now Kenin will face Ashleigh Barty on one side of the box that has opened a lot without Kvitova and after the eliminations of Osaka and Serena.
