4 in the world Serena Williams has been chosen by Paula Badosa as the greatest tennis player of all time. Badosa spoke with the LTA, who grilled the Spaniard with a number of inquiries. Picking the greatest player in history was one of the inquiries Badosa was asked.
Badosa responded, “Serena Williams.”
Badosa was unwilling to portray Williams.
Williams missed the entire 2021 Wimbledon season after suffering a significant leg injury.
Williams announced her participation in Wimbledon on Instagram two weeks prior to the tournament. The general response was favorable since many players, both former and present, were ecstatic to see Williams back in action.
Badosa referred to Williams as a “inspiration” when asked about her return. Badosa stated at Wimbledon, “I think it surprised everyone. “But it’s great to have her back, and I was genuinely surprised by how much hunger she still had for the game.
It really inspires me, in my opinion. She does a great job in tennis, so I hope she can stay for a very long time.” Williams had a chance to face a top player in the first round at Wimbledon because she was given a main draw wildcard.
Badosa said that she didn’t want to face Williams in the first round of Wimbledon when the question was raised. “Naturally, I don’t want to compete with her. No one wants to face Serena, much less on grass, therefore I’m hoping that another player gets the draw.
Therefore, let’s pray for that “said Badosa. Williams is getting ready to take part in the US Open as well. Williams and Badosa didn’t cross paths at Wimbledon, but there is a potential that they will at the US Open.
It will be intriguing to see if Badosa gets the chance to play the American before she retires because the two have never faced off against one another.
