Kenin is just so mean—the way she stomps around the court like everyone else is inferior, screams “COME ON!!!!” at every single point, and bounces the ball so hard once she’s finished a service game. Many other players would have wilted after hearing Serena scream a few times in the second set (*cough* Barty *cough*) but Sofia was totally unbothered and just kept focused on the task at hand.
As for Serena? Her footwork is so bad. She improved in Set 2 but against Kenin it wasn’t enough. It’s hard to say what’s next because she has been dealing with injuries but nearly 80% of her points are from Wimbledon and USO, so she needs to drag her ass to some events before she’s out of Top 50 and her quest for #24 is effectively over.
