Despite losing back-to-back finals, this will be a huge confidence boost for the American tennis star. Last year, she reached the quarter-final, and this year she reached the final. Safe to say, she has been improving day by day.

Now, she will definitely try to carry forward this form in the grass-court season and the Wimbledon. Incidentally, Wimbledon has been one of her stronger tournaments. Two times she reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and maybe this time she could go further, just like she did in the French Open.
