MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) It was all a bit overwhelming for the latest opponent who could do nothing to slow Serena Williams at the Australian Open. So Dayana Yastremska, an 18-year-old from Ukraine, found herself wiping away tears as she walked to the net.

Williams knows what it's like to be the one weeping after a loss. She put her right hand on Yastremska's shoulder and consoled her by saying, "You're so young. You did amazing. Don't cry." Then they embraced, and Williams patted Yastremska on the back.

"I could tell she was quite upset. I kind of liked that. It shows she wasn't just there to play a good match - she was there to win. She wanted to win. That really broke my heart," Williams said. "I think she's a good talent. It's good to see that attitude."
