Serena Williams hails Tiger Woods’ influence as she continues her US Open run

Serena Williams says she is happy to have had the opportunity to work with ‘tough’ Tiger Woods during their time together at the US Open.

World number one Williams, 34, has been playing on the same Tour with Woods for more than a year, and the Australian is delighted to have finally made it to a Grand Slam tournament as a pair after having a go at the Australian Open, which she won in 2011, as a one-off. Williams’ first Grand Slam success came at the 2009 Australian Open when she broke through in the second round in a run that saw her drop just three games.

However, after that run, Williams had to wait another year before making it to the Australian Open in 2011, where she lost in the first round to world number one Angelique Kerber.

A year later, after Williams had won the 2010 Australian Open as a one-off against Justine Henin, she got another one, as she beat Kerber again in the first round of this year’s US Open.

“I remember talking to him on the tour,” said Williams, who began her career with a victory at the 1997 U.S. Open against then world number one Henin. “I remember him saying he always wanted to play me and that he was going to retire.

“But Tiger’s my best friend so I wanted to give him a shot. And what he did he does better than anybody. He’s tough and he’s so much stronger than he looks. He’s just a great, great human.”

Now Williams has completed her US Open campaign without a defeat, having won every match she has played and with a 2-0 record in the tournament, which begins on Thursday day.

Williams will be involved in an intense final four day on the court before the women’s final on Sunday, when the top four seeds face off against the remaining seeds.

Williams is ranked number one in the world, with Kerber in second and Henin third. However, Williams says she wants more from the final day of the tournament, and has asked the organisers to change the format of the final four.

She feels it is unfair that the top four seeds who had better tournament records should be on different grounds.

“I see it as unfair, because you have players who play well the other games and they shouldn’t end up seeded
