Then there’s Serena Williams, born in 1981, who as a child idolized Monica Seles, born in 1973, then grew up to become an idol for Michaella Krajicek, born in 1989.
Now Williams will play Krajicek in a third-round reminder that Krajicek might feel what Williams used to feel when Williams played Seles.
“That’s awesome,” Williams said, when told Krajicek idolized her. “That’s so sweet. I know the feeling because I loved Monica Seles, so whenever I got a chance to play her, I was just still really excited. And, you know, winning against her was like the ultimate goal. Every time was just so cool. So I know the feeling. It’s just kind of strange to be in the opposite position.”
