塞雷娜-威廉姆斯對溫布爾登的未來不確定,但希望獲得更多的大滿貫賽事

最後更新於.從網球部分

塞雷娜-威廉姆斯不確定她是否會再次參加溫布爾登比賽,但她說周二的首輪出局激勵她參加未來的大滿貫比賽。

當被問及這是否會是她在全英俱樂部的最後一次亮相時,這位40歲的美國人說。"這是一個我無法回答的問題。我不知道。

"誰知道我會在哪裡突然出現?"

七屆溫布爾登單打冠軍威廉姆斯--她正在追趕瑪格麗特-考特的24個大滿貫單打冠軍的記錄--說她不希望星期二的失利成為她對這個她曾取得過如此多成功的球場的最後記憶。

"顯然不是,"她說。"你了解我。絕對不是。

"我付出了我能做的一切。也許明天我可以付出更多。也許一個星期前我可以給得更多。但今天是我能做的。在某些時候,你必須能夠接受這一點。"

  • 無 威廉姆斯在首輪輸給了譚詠麟
  • 無 拉杜卡努和穆雷在第三天領跑

威廉姆斯在第一輪對陣阿里克桑德拉-薩斯諾維奇的比賽中右腳踝受傷,淚流滿面地從中心球場一瘸一拐地離開後,近一年才面對譚詠麟。

她在本月早些時候承認--當她在伊斯特本與Ons Jabeur的雙打比賽中復出時--她曾對自己在網球中的未來抱有疑慮。

但在輸給譚詠麟後,威廉姆斯暗示在她的主場--8月下旬開始的美國公開賽--出現可能會吸引她繼續訓練。

"她說:"當你在家裡,尤其是在紐約,而且那是我第一次贏得大滿貫的地方,它總是很特別。

"總是有動力讓自己變得更好,在家裡打球。"

在她被迫缺席之後,世界排名第1204位,這位美國名將補充說,如果有的話,她在對陣譚詠麟時的表現成為了繼續前進的動力。

"這肯定讓我想打練習場,因為當你如此接近時--任何其他對手都會更適合我的比賽--我肯定認為這就像,好吧塞雷娜,如果你想的話,你可以做到。"

她補充說:"在身體上我做得很好。最後幾分我真的很痛苦,但我覺得贏得這些關鍵分是你在精神上必須擁有的東西。

"如果你每周都打比賽,或者每隔三、四周就打一次,那麼比賽的韌性就會更強。你必須想到,如果我在打比賽,我就不會錯過其中的一些分數。"

Serena Williams is unsure whether she will play at Wimbledon again, but says Tuesday's first-round exit has motivated her for future Grand Slams.

Asked whether it would be her last appearance at the All England Club, the 40-year-old American said: "That's a question I can't answer. I don't know.

"Who knows where I'll pop up?"

Seven-time Wimbledon singles champion Williams - who is chasing Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles - said she did not want Tuesday's loss to be her final memory of a court on which she has had so much success.

"Obviously not," she said. "You know me. Definitely not.

"I gave all I could do. Maybe tomorrow I could have given more. Maybe a week ago I could have given more. But today was what I could do. At some point, you have to be able to be OK with that." • None Williams loses to Tan in first round • None Raducanu and Murray lead the way on day three

Williams faced Tan almost a year to the day after limping tearfully off Centre Court having hurt her right ankle in her first-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

She admitted earlier this month - as she made her comeback at Eastbourne in the doubles alongside Ons Jabeur - she had harboured doubts about her future in tennis.

But after losing to Tan, Williams hinted an appearance at her home major - the US Open, which begins in late August - could tempt her to continue training.

"When you're at home, especially in New York and that being the place I first won a Grand Slam, it is always special," she said.

"There's always motivation to get better and play at home."

Ranked 1,204th in the world following her enforced absence, the American great added that, if anything, her performance against Tan had served as fuel to continue.

"It definitely makes me want to hit the practice courts because when you're so close - any other opponent would have suited my game better - I definitely think it's like, OK Serena, you can do it if you want."

She added: "Physically I did pretty good. The last couple of points I was really suffering but I feel like winning those key points is something mentally you have to have.

"If you play week in, week out, or every three or four weeks there is a little more match toughness. You have to think if I was playing matches I wouldn't miss some of those points." • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone • None Find out what inspired the man who wrote Line of Duty • None But how do they fry with air?
