Serena Williams‘ victory over Anett Kontaveit was one of her three greatest US Open memories, according to her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Williams upset second-seeded Kontaveit in the second round of the US Open 7-6 (4) 2-6 6-2.
The match between Williams and Kontaveit broke the previous US Open attendance record with 29,959 fans in attendance. In a video he shared on Instagram, Mouratoglou stated, “Serena beating Kontaveit, number two in the world, coming from where she was coming in the previous weeks, is a big and the fact that she was at home in the US, it was the right spot for her to say farewell.”
Williams-Kontaveit is followed by Mouratoglou’s revelation of Nos. 1 and 2.
Nadal was defeated by American Tiafoe 6-4 4-6 6-4 6-3 in the round of 16 at the US Open.
On the court, Tiafoe showed no fear and ended up earning one of his career’s biggest victories. “I find Frances’ emotion to be incredible, and I believe everyone does as well. It’s very moving to watch him defeat Rafa on this court at the US Open while at home.
He’s such a showman; he adds so much to the game, and I believe what he accomplished added significantly to the event “said Mouratoglou. The match between Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner was chosen by Mouratoglou as the highlight of this year’s US Open.
Alcaraz defeated Sinner 6-3 6-7 (7) 6-7 (0) 7-5 6-3 after saving a match point in a suspenseful encounter that lasted more than five hours. Alcaraz recovered from a break down in the fifth set after saving a match point in the fourth. “The Sinner/Alcaraz match, which had an incredible level, five sets, and a match point for Sinner, was unquestionably the best of the competition.
We’re going to see a lot of Grand Slam finals with players who are likely to become the sport’s biggest stars in the future. And this match was the US Open’s masterclass overall “Mouratoglou came to an end.
