American tennis player Venus Williams commented on the victory at the start of the tournament in Cincinnati.
“I’m not expecting anything from myself, I just play match after match. My rivals show cool tennis, and Bertens was at her best.
The heat was in the way, so I just focused on the movement. I don’t know what the opponent has, but it was difficult for me. We played in the hottest time of the day, but managed. It was hard not to hit with all my might because I wanted to finish faster. I tried to be smarter, “the press service of the Tour quotes Venus.
