American Superstar, Serena Williams knocked out Greece’s Maria Sakkari, aceing a breathtaking 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 win in the US Open 2020 pre-quarterfinals. Along with becoming the only tennis player to attain a 100th win at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, she reserved a historic 53rd Major quarterfinal spot in her career.
Post-match, she was asked about her thoughts about World No. 1 Novak Djokovic’s shocking disqualification from the tournament after he unintentionally hit the line judge’s throat with a ball during his match against Busta.
I’m just not touching it: Williams on Djokovic’s disqualification
Williams revealed her thoughts of knowing the matter. But at the same time she reprobated opening up on the same.
“Yeah, you know, I’m not going to touch that. I’m going to leave that to you guys. I’m just not touching it,” she said.
A few minutes later, when another reporter remarked on the same topic, her reply was the same. “So, yeah, Mark, I already said I’m not going to touch that. I’m going to leave that to you guys. Good try, though (smiling),” she added.
Williams is all set for ‘The Battle of Mothers’ against Tsvetana Pironkova in the next round, who made a stunning comeback on the WTA Tour after 3 years. She had taken a break from the sport to accomplish her personal life responsibilities.
