Serena Williams Was Not Ready For The “Forehand Slice”
Last week Serena Williams was preparing for her Wimbledon return after being out for a season. It seems she had prepared for the tournament both physically and mentally but wasn’t so ready for the “forehand slice”, which allowed Harmony Tan to win.
Wimbledon tweeted : "She's beaten a legend. After three hours, 10 minutes, Harmony Tan beats Serena Williams in a first-round epic.” Ranked No.115 Frenchwoman Harmony Tan sliced her way into an epic victory over the 23-time Grand Slam champion, denying her pace and consistently putting her in an uncomfortable position.
"I think I could have played any person, probably would have had a different result," Williams said. "But I was not ready for -- I knew going into it there was a lot of slice, but not so much on the forehand."
It was the kind of tennis that we haven’t seen in a long time on a consistent basis since the days of Pam Shriver, the former world No. 3 whose forehand slice was an integral part of her success, especially on grass.
