Australian Open: Fearing loss, Serena says no to movies

Melbourne (IANS): American tennis star Serena Williams will not be watching movies during the Australian Open and focus solely on the business of winning.

Last year, Williams went to the movies before her quarterfinal match against Serb Jelena Jankovic to ease off some pressure but was shattered when she lost. The former No.1 said this year she will be room-bound as she makes a shot at a 10th Grand Slam title.

"My mum (Oracene Price) is here, a friend's here," Serena was quoted as saying in Herald Sun. "Last year I went to the movies, but I'm not going to do that this year because I lost. So I'm just going to stay in my room.

"What athlete isn't superstitious? I try not to be, but I can't help it." The World No.2 sounded an ominous warning on the eve of the Open, declaring she is yet to reach her peak despite winning nine majors since 1999.

"I feel like I'm trying to improve on my game and get better," the US Open champion said. "I hope I'm better than what I was five years ago. I would say that I am. But a lot of the girls now, especially when they play against me, and probably Venus too, they want to beat the best players and say that I was able to beat them."
