Serena Williams in a match that ended in less than an hour, lost by 6-1, 6-0 to Johanna Konta on Tuesday night at her opening match of the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic.

“I know I can play a zillion times better so that kind of helps out, too. I have so many things on my mind; I don’t have time to be shocked about a loss that clearly wasn’t at my best right now,” Williams said. “When I was out there, was fighting. That’s the only thing I can say. I wasn’t just like giving it away and I was moving a lot better. So I’m just trying to take the positives out of it.”

Konta, who won the game said it was a privilege to be on the same court as Williams, “She obviously wasn’t playing her best level or nowhere near it and I really just tried to play the match on my terms.” she said after the match.
