Patrick reveals the reasons for her poor performance in Wimbledon 2019 Finals. He believed Serena was not completely herself while playing the match. He feels she’ll soon pull it off. “I’ve been so impressed because you have no idea about how much effort she put there. She wants to get that record. It’s on the line. She feels she can do it,” he added.

“She’s been close because she’s reached the last three years four Grand Slam finals. Something is missing even though she’s close. When you reach the final, you’re just one match away from achieving your goal”- Patrick said after the 2019 finals.

Presently due to the outbreak of the pandemic, Serena is training in the US and Mouratoglou is staying in France. Both contact virtually and are still keeping up with the training.
