In the press conference after the quarterfinal match against Halep, Serena Williams said: “I just realized I was making a lot of unforced errors in those games that I lost. And, I knew that I had an opportunity to play better. So I was just like, Just stay in there. You just can keep going. And that’s what I just did. I know that, throughout my career, speed has been one thing that’s been super good in my game. This is the best match I’ve played this tournament, for sure. I knew I should have done better than other matches and I did. I am radiant about it. During the off-season I didn’t specifically train on a few shots, I was more concerned with recovering physically.”

The 39 years-old Amercian Tennis champion face Naomi Osaka who reached the semifinal of the Australian Open 2021 by beating Su-Wei Hsieh in straigh sets, with the final score of 6-2 6-2.

In the press conference after the match, the Japanese talked about the match and abiut her idol Serena Williams.

She said: “I’m really happy with how I played – every time I play her it’s such a battle and despite the score it was another battle for me. It makes me a bit more calm, just knowing that even though my back was severely against the wall I still had opportunities.”

Even today when I had two match points and she saved them both, normally I feel like I would have panicked but today I was pretty calm. About Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka said: “I always watch Serena’s matches, anyway. Definitely going to be real fun. I keep the TV on the tennis, right? But if there’s an interesting match to watch, I’ll watch it. It’s just kind of interesting to watch her form. For me, I grew up watching Serena, Federer, Nadal. It’s just more of a habit than anything. I feel like everyone in the tournament watches her.”
