Search for another title.

Now, Serena Williams reveals that she has been in therapy to regain love for the sport.

– This was the only way, she says.

This year's edition of Wimbledon has entered its decisive stage and, again, Serena Williams is one of those who are fighting for the title. The 37-year-old world star comes to the semifinals after defeating compatriot Alison Riske on Tuesday with 6-4, 4-6, and 6-3.

– I was really charged for this match. The way to the semi-final in Wimbledon is long and difficult, says Williams.

He is now pursuing another Grand Slam title. Its classification number 24 and the 8th in Wimbledon.

But the way here has been to blame.

Serena Williams reveals that, last autumn, he felt compelled to seek help to regain love for the sport.

"I went to therapy", writes in a chronicle to Harper's Bazaar magazine.

It caused a scene

It was the final of the United States Open against Naomi Osaka that was facing Williams.

Not surprisingly, he lost the feeling of 20 years of Japan, but the scenes that took place during and after the game, when Williams threatened to arbitrate in chief, called him "thief" and helped him public Osaka was the young man during the prize ceremony.

"They spent several days without me finding inner peace. I did not even want to put a racket"Williams writes.


She believed that the attack on the judge was made to fight against sexism and racism, but when he came to Osaka, 20, who cried during the award ceremony, Williams received feelings guilty.

"In the end I noticed that there was only one way to go: apologize to Naomi."

Osaka accepted the apologies and forgiven Williams.

"When I read your answers, the tears started to lower through the cheeks"She writes.

"No pressure"

Williams is against Czech Barbora Strycova in semifinals.

A match in which it is clear favorite.

But the 37-year-old man has nothing for granted.

– And no matter what happens, I've had a fantastic career. So I do not feel any pressure in the same way as I did before, says Serena Williams.
