Infidelity does the trick?
Serena Williams has been on a tear since her embarrassing 1st round oust last year at Roland Garros, winning 3 slams and Olympic gold.
The major adjustment? Her change in coaches, Patrick Mouratoglou and Williams have been in more than just working relationship but a physical one, too.
This has caused controversy because Mouratoglou is separated from his wife and has children. This fact was memorably brought up by Maria Sharapova a few months ago, and as Serena continues to glide through rounds one can’t help but take notice of the two’s relationship even closer.
The 43-year-old French man stated the following about Serena’s performance, NY Daily News via Bossip:
“Mentally, she’s different. She really wants it,…She’s working like she’s 19 years old and wants to win her first Grand Slam. She has the same appetite.
“That makes a huge difference. How many players being (almost) 32 have the same appetite and especially after winning so many Grand Slams? I mean, they are different. Serena is really different, mentally.”
The two seem quite happy as photos of the them in intimate moments continuously surface. Could love be the real secret to Serena’s success? Has it brought her passion back?
Of course with the high profile name comes the chatter, and the question on many’s minds is if Serena played the role of home wrecker. Mouratoglou has 3 children, and technically is legally married–dampens the romanticism a tad.
Things to wonder about as Serena tries to make history on the hard courts in Flushing.
