Serena Williams is getting faster and fitter in her hunt for an elusive 24th Grand Slam title and the 37-year-old still has time on her side despite missed opportunities, the American's coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, has said.
Williams suffered her fourth consecutive defeat in a Grand Slam final at the US Open earlier this month, as she again came agonisingly close to Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 majors before falling in straight sets.
"She is getting back in shape, and the more in shape she will be, the more dangerous she will be. I think she has started to play really good tennis," Mouratoglou said. Mouratoglou said Williams must play without the pressure of having to solidify her place in tennis history.
