Serena Williams French Open 2021

WATCH: Serena Williams shows pace and stamina as part of win in all-American affair

Serena Williams outclassed opponent Danielle Collins to secure a fourth round spot in straight sets at the French Open.

The three-time champion in Paris fought well to win her match in under an hour and a half and straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

Serena Williams used her powerful serve effectively, winning 82% of points behind her first serve, losing just 6 of 34 points on it.



The 23-time Slam champion also punished Collins when she missed her second serve, as Williams won 60% of points on second serve return (18 of 30).

Like Roger Federer, it looks like Serena Williams made the correct decision to take part at Roland Garros despite both having less than strong chances of winning the tournament outright.

Both players will now have a minimum of four matches guaranteed before playing Wimbledon, where experts agree that both have their best chance at adding to their Grans Slam tallies.

Wimbledon 2019 was the last time that Federer reached a Grand Slam final, while Serena reached the US Open final after Wimbledon, and hasn’t reached the championship match of a Slam since.
