Serena needs a new approach to overcome the court, says the coach
Former world number one Serena Williams he must rethink his approach to Grand Slams after his last attempt to win a 24th major record prize faded into Melbourne Park , His trainer Patrick Mouratoglou has said.
The 38-year-old American, who seeks to match the great Australian Margaret Court The record has reached four Grand Slam finals since giving birth to his daughter Olympia in 2017, but he couldn't win any of them.
She arrived at the Australian Open this year after winning the Auckland Classic title but was hit by China Wang Qiang in the third round
We have to accept the fact that it is not working, Mouratoglou told the BBC.
We have to face reality, but she is sure she can do it, otherwise, she probably would not be on a tennis court anymore. She thinks she can and I think so too. It's not that far, but we have to change a few things.
You may return with a different angle, strategy and goals so you can achieve it. She feels positive, she also feels negative because it is a failure when she doesn't win a Grand Slam.
Mouratoglou said time was not on Williams' side in the search for the record.
He had everything to retire, 23 Grand Slam titles ... it's hard to know how many chances he will have, I don't know how long he can play, but being able to reach four Grand Slam finals says a lot about his level.
His level is good enough, but we have to understand what is happening, why he can't win. There is a big difference between reaching a final and winning it.
