Serena Williams gave little away Sunday as she assessed her chances of retaining her Wimbledon title – and dismissed suggestions that she is under any pressure.The 34-year-old American has not struck a ball competitively since losing to Spain's Garbine Muguruza in the French Open final on June 4 -- a defeat that frustrated her hopes of matching Steffi Graf's professional era record of 22 grand slam titles.Considering she also fell at the final hurdle in Australia against Angelique Kerber and went out of the U.S. Open semifinals last year when two wins away from a calendar grand slam, Williams would be forgiven for feeling a little edgy.Williams never feels the need to play grasscourt warm-up tournaments, preferring instead to hit on the hardcourts back home before arriving in the week before the tournament.
