Serena Williams US Open schedule and results: No. 2 Anett Kontaveit awaits in round 2 after thrilling win

Serena Williams is having her last dance before retiring at the 2022 US Open, and the 40-year-old superstar isn’t quite ready to ride off into the sunset just yet. Williams won her first-round match against Danka Kovinic, 6-3, 6-3, on Monday in New York to keep her legendary career alive for at least a couple more days.

Williams entered the stadium to an eruption of applause led by her 4-year-old daughter Olympia and had a huge wave of support throughout the night with many famous faces in the crowd. While injuries have slowed him down in recent years, Williams still plays with plenty of power and used it to dominate Kovinic from the first set. He had a huge advantage on first serves, winning points at a rate of 77 per cent in such scenarios (Kovinic was on 61 per cent) and also hitting nine aces (Kovinic had six). For the match, Williams earned 76 points to Kovinic’s 52.

Williams has not formally announced that she would retire from tennis after the tournament, but indicated that this will be her last Grand Slam at least in a recent cover story for Vogue. She is a 23-time Grand Slam champion and has six US Open titles to her name.

Williams now faces tournament No. 2 seed Anett Kontaveit on Wednesday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN. We will include the time when it is announced. Williams also wants to play doubles with her sister Venus at the 2022 US Open.
