Wimbledon 2018: Garbine Muguruza plays down Serena Williams controversy

  • Wimbledon- WTA Draw Serena Williams could face Svitolina in third round

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams delivered a strong opening act, defeating Arantxa Rus 7-5, 6-3.

At a pre-tournament press conference on Sunday, she said that, far from being a hindrance, motherhood had been a boost to her competitive instinct.

A few weeks earlier, Williams had taken to Twitter to vent her frustrations: "And.... just like that anti doping is here ...again... second time this week".

"I think it varies from place to place that you spend your time in".

That amount was higher, per Deadspin, than for other top American women, including reigning U.S. Open champion and French Open runner-up Sloane Stephens, as well as for her sister Venus Williams and for the top five male American players.

"More than anything, I just was trying to be more calm", Williams explained afterward.

As Williams moves forward in the tournament, she'll have to figure out how aggressive she can be with a serve that isn't yet the pulverizing weapon it was when she won her seventh Wimbledon title in 2016.

"I came in here expecting that maybe I wouldn't get a seed. You know, I nearly want to feel the need to go out there and be the best that I can be". To honest, in the 15 years I've been there, it's been one test.

Concerned at being tested more than her fellow American players, seven-time Wimbledon victor Williams revealed she had spoken to USADA chiefs.

She said she went vegan - "Not French fry-eating vegan" - and didn't eat any sugar, but still struggled to get to the weight she should have been at even if she wasn't following that specific diet.

"I think probably it would be helpful a few more years for the boys to really remember".

Having been forced to withdraw from Roland Garros before her scheduled match against Maria Sharapova, it was an encouraging start to her Wimbledon campaign.

"Just due to the numbers, it looks like I'm being pushed out". "Sorry to go on about that, but I wanted to say that so women out there know that's not true [losing weight while breast-feeding]. It will be impossible for me not to feel some kind of way about that".

Serena's fellow tennis-playing mother, Victoria Azarenka, a former world number one and two-time semi-finalist, defeated Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russian Federation 7-6 (7/4), 6-3.

Drug testers can make unannounced visits outside of that one-hour window, but if the athlete is not available they will not receive a "missed test" designation. "When I saw it, I actually learned from it". She's not opposed to drug testing, but said: "Just test everyone equally".

At its peak, her game is as peerless as it is powerful: shotgun serve, thunderous groundstrokes, coupled with a methodical tennis mind and one of the most wrought-iron wills in world sport. "I think it's very noble and cool". She's not making the same mistake here at Wimbledon, skipping doubles in pursuit of her eighth singles championship and 24th major overall.

Not really, she said with a slight laugh, confessing that it still didn't register that she was married, given all that had happened in the past 12 months.
