Wimbledon 2015: I don’t need to win, I play for fun, says Serena Williams
Serena Williams says she feels under less pressure to win titles than ever after reaching another Wimbledon final
Serena Williams insists that she feels under no pressure to win any more Grand Slam titles after reaching the final of Wimbledon on Thursday.
Williams, 33, says that the pressure of winning titles has subsided in recent years and she has now turned her focus on enjoying the game more.
She said: “I’m at a position where I don’t need to win another Wimbledon. I could lose tomorrow. Sure, I won’t be happy. But I don’t need another Wimbledon title. I don’t need another US Open. I don’t need any titles to make it.
“Every time I step out on court, the practice court, the match court, I do look at it as a more fun time because it’s not as much stressful as it was. Like getting to 18 [Majors] was super stressful for me. It was fun, but I was so stressed out.
“After that, I’ve just been really enjoying myself.”
