This comes after Serena’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou said Serena’s team might have to change their strategy because she hasn’t won a Grand Slam title since returning to tennis after childbirth.

“We have to accept the fact that it is not working,” said Mouratoglou.

Speaking to BBC Sport, he added: “Maybe come back with a different angle, a different strategy and different goals so she can make it.

“She does feel positive, she feels negative too because it is a failure when she doesn’t win a Grand Slam.
