Re: Sloane deserves credit injury or not most players would have choked this match
“I don't think my level was high. I don't know how many unforced errors I ended up hitting, but for sure more in one set than I probably did in the whole tournament.
“So I think her level was high. But as for my end, I mean, you can tell. You each can say this is definitely not my best match in months.”
For the record, Williams struck 48 unforced errors to her opponent’s 39. Considering Williams hadn’t hit more than 25 in any of her previous matches in Melbourne, then statistically this was easily her worst performance.
