Evgeniya Rodina: "Serena Williams is really hard to play against on grass"
Russian tennis player Evgeniya Rodina, who lost in the second round of the "MOSCOW RIVER CUP presented by INGRAD" to Belarussian athlete Aliaksandra Sasnovich 5/7, 2/6, commented on the match and playing Serena Williams.

Evgeniya: The first set was tough, a lot of fighting. In the second set I called the doctor on court, my back was hurting. I can't say if I would have won, if it wasn't for my injury…there was not much pain, I could have played on. Sasnovich is a very good player, top-50. I've played with her before and lost, it's very hard for me to oppose her. It was a very hard match…Would I have won, if the first set was more successful? I don't know…can't say how the things would have turned out.
Serena Williams still plays really good, her serve is especially powerful - 200 km/h. During our match she invariably performed two aces per game. I was expecting a game like this from her, she is really good on grass, while I was physically tired and my leg was hurting.
The organisation of "MOSCOW RIVER CUP presented by INGRAD" is of the highest level. Everything is good.
