"Those ingrates to whom the miracle of the Williams sisters has lost its freshness will have been especially vexed that Maria Sharapova, one of the only females in the species competent to interrupt their duopoly here, should be flung into the path of Serena as early as the fourth round." Serena forced into top gear to tame Sharapova by Chris McGrath at Wimbledon, The Independent 29 June 2010

"Beyond Serena’s larger-than-life personality, she is someone who succeeds with a less-is-more technique that puts her at the head of the class in the game’s three main dimensions – forehand, backhand and serve. Sometimes lost in all her grunting and screeching as she hits the ball is that she is extremely technically sound. There is no excess motion on her ground strokes and her serve is a study in measured efficiency." Serena’s mental toughness matches her physical gifts by Tom Tebbutt, The Globe and Mail
