Tan -- who made her mark with the match during her Wimbledon debut -- was emotional when addressing the media after her win, admitting that having to face Williams had been an intimidating thought. "She's a superstar. When I was young, I was watching her so many times on the TV," Tan said. "When I saw the draw, I was really scared. She's such a legend. I thought if I can win one game, two games, that would be really good for me."
Per CBS Sports, Williams said she felt OK with her performance and took it easy on herself after the loss because she knew her long absence was going to affect her.
"It was definitely a very long battle and fight," she said during the post-match press conference. "It's definitely better than last year, that's a start."
When asked if this was her last time at the All England Club, Williams said she is not summing up her legacy quite yet and that when it comes to her future, she is taking it day by day. "I don't know. Obviously we are in the summer now so, like I said coming into this, I'm just playing for right now and seeing how I feel. Just go from there," she added.
