Serena Williams talks outburst before Wimbledon victory: 'I was just really, really, really angry'


            	Wimbledon 2016 day five: Venus and Serena Williams through to the next round

Everyone's cracked a racket every now and then, right?

Serena Williams is speaking out, and addressing her racket-slamming outburst during her match at Wimbledon on Friday.

During her second-round match against Christina McHale -- which she later won -- Williams slammed her racket into the court five times before tossing it behind her. The racket slid through grass, landing in the lap of a cameraman positioned in the photo pit.

"I was just really, really, really angry," Williams explained to the Guardian. "She just was playing great. I was a little disappointed in myself at that point."

This isn't first time Williams has taken her frustrations out on a racket. "I've cracked a number of rackets throughout my career," she explained in a press conference post-game.

But the tennis champ has also learned to have a sense of humor about it. "I try to crack a certain [amount of rackets] a year. I'm a little behind this year," Williams joked. "So it was good."

And as it seems, cracking rackets can be great for self confidence, as she revealed she's now on top of her game. "I know mentally, no one can break me. I'm ready for it," Williams said. "I'm ready for any challenge."

Williams takes full responsiblity for every match -- including last year's loss at the U.S. Open.

While seemingly everyone blamed her rumored fling Drake for bringing bad juju to the game, the 34-year-old tennis star insists that her game is her own. "I'm the one who's playing, who's making mistakes or making winners...I played a really good opponent that day. And I wasn't at my best," she told Glamour.
