Serena Williams extends her farewell tour with victory in the first round of the US Open

Serena Williams wants to prolong her single career for at least two more days after hitting Danka Kovinić in the first round of the US Open 2022 on Monday.

In front of a star-studded crowd at Flushing Meadows, the 23-time Grand Slam champion defeated the 27-year-old Montenegrin in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

After arriving at Arthur Ashe Stadium to much fanfare on Monday, Williams’ nerves showed early in the game. The six-time US Open champion herself committed five double faults in the opening set, but eventually found her serve to close out the opening set with two aces in the last three points.

Williams’ serving continued to drive her forward in the second set as she dominated after winning a break point to put her up 3-2. She would lose just one more game in the match before shutting down Kovinić, much to the delight of the crowd in attendance.
