In the first round of the US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Serena Williams defeated Danka Kovini 6-3, 6-3 to start singles play in what is most certainly the final tennis competition of her illustrious career. On Wednesday, Williams will play Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit, the world’s No. 2, in the 64-player singles round. It will be their first professional encounter.
After initially having issues with her serve on Monday night, Serena Williams defeated Kovini, a 27-year-old Montenegrin who is ranked 80th in the world, by winning 10 of the final 13 games. According to sports analyst Howard Bryant of Meadowlark Media, Williams has only competed in four bouts so far this year and has only achieved one victory.
She truly is an underdog to win the U.S. Open, maybe for the first time in her life, according to Bryant. But gosh, if she can get to New York and do some magic, what a lovely fairy tale narrative it would be.Williams will continue to break new ground once she hangs up her tennis racket and concentrate on expanding the venture capital company she founded eight years ago.
