A disappointed soon to be 38 – year-old Serena later in post match conference termed her loss in the finals as ‘inexcusable’.
“I love Bianca. I think she’s a great girl. But I think this was the worst match I’ve played all tournament. It’s hard to know that you could do better,” Williams said.
“Bianca obviously played well. I think her returns make me play better and put pressure on my serve.
“At the same time it’s inexcusable for me to play at that level.”
