2016 Williams Watch- US Open Starts Today
It's the last tennis Grand Slam tourney of the year, and she's still not happy about the one that got away. So look out all you peeps playing against her starting today and over the next two weeks,
Serena's still ranked number one in the world, is the number one seed in this edition of the US Open and number one in our hearts. She and Venus step on the Flushing Meadows grounds of a USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center that has undergone some major changes,
Unlike the Australian Open and Wimbledon, the US Open officials plans are to only close the Ashe Stadium roof for rain, not extreme heat. We'll see how long that lasts.
But back to talking about the US Open which will run until September 11. Serena will start her pursuit of her record seventh US Open title title and 23rd major title with a tough opening round match versus Russia's Ekaterina Makarova.
Should she win that one, it's on to the second round to face the winner of the Antonia Lottner- Vania King match
She will open up first round play in a match with Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine, and would face the winner of the Julia Gorges-Yanina Wickmayer match in the second round.
Best of luck to my fave tennis playing siblings in this last tennis Grand Slam of 2016.
