Serena Williams won her U.S. Open match in 21 minutes - For The Win
"...If the first match is any indication, better start engraving Serena Williams' name on that U.S. Open trophy. The world No. 1, hoping to become the first woman in 27 years to win the calendar Grand Slam, won her first match in a grand total of 21 minutes of playing time, a 6-2, 2-0 victory over No. 86 Vitalia Diatchenko, who was clearly struggling with injury before retiring after losing her eighth straight game.Some of the highlights and lowlights from the match: The first five games took 12 minutes. Then, Diatchenko took a medical timeout which lasted almost as long: seven minutes...." see full article

Serena Williams isn't worried about history, she's just here to play - SI.com
"...She should feel good. Williams's 49-2 record this year has been belied by an uncharacteristic shakiness at the majors, especially in early rounds. Yet even before the world No. 1 hit her first ball Monday, No. 3 Maria Sharapova had withdrawn with injury and six seeds had tumbled out, including a troubling twosome longtime rival Ana Ivanovic and one-time semi-prot g Sloane Stephens lurking on her side of the draw. Not that Williams will admit, usually," to peeking...." see full article

Why Serena Williams will lose the U.S. Open - For The Win
"...Every sports fan should hope Serena Williams wins the U.S. Open. It'll be a memorable piece of sports history and a boon for the sport in America. But I don't think it's happening. I believe Serena's quest to become the fourth-ever calendar Slam winner ends in New York. Here's why:1. Tournaments don't always determine the best player. Marin Cilic winning the Open last year and Marion Bartoli winning Wimbledon the year before that is all the proof you need. So don't pencil in Serena for a title simply because she's the greatest female athlete of her generation. Yes, she's won 21 Grand Slams, the second most of all time, but she's also lost 39. That means she's won 35% of her major tournaments, which is stunning, but still means she's lost almost twice as much as she's won. Winning seven matches in 14 days is nothing anyone should take for granted, even when you're as dominant as Serena...." see full article

Tough road between Serena Williams and US Open final - USA TODAY

"...The world No. 1 has a potential path that includes almost every female American tennis player of note: Sloane Stephens or CoCo Vandeweghe in the third round; Madison Keys in the fourth round; and sister Venus in the quarterfinals.Serena Williams, chasing the calendar Grand Slam which hasn't been done in tennis since Steffi Graf won all four in 1988, was handed one of her toughest roads at a Slam in Thursday's draw. After a first-round encounter with world No. 86 Russian Vitalia Diatchenko, things only get harder, including a potential second-round opponent in hard-hitting Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.Maria Sharapova, the No. 3 seed, landed on Williams' half of the draw, as well, as No. 2 seed Simona Halep anchors the bottom half and is joined by Caroline Wozniacki, the No. 4 seed and 2014 runner-up to Williams.Williams' potential path doesn't just include the best of the best in the U.S. Agnieszka Radwanska, who Williams beat in the 2012 Wimbledon final, is another potential roadblock in the fourth round, while Belinda Bencic, the fast rising 18-year-old who beat her just two weeks ago, is a possible opponent in the quarterfinals. Karolina Pliskova, a Czech player recently into the top 10, is seeded No. 8 and could meet Williams in the quarterfinals, as well...." see full article

US Open draw revealed, setting path for Serena Williams' Grand Slam try - ESPN

"...The silver lining on Serena's draw is that she may not have to meet sister Venus in the quarterfinals. That's because Venus' own draw is a tough one with Monica Puig in the opener and a possible date with Roger's Cup champ and No. 12 seed Belinda Bencic in the fourth round. Serena's journey won't be a cakewalk, either. Her path has fellow countrywomen No. 28 Sloane Stephens and No. 19 Madison Keys awaiting. Also in that quarter: hard-hitting Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (Serena's potential second-round opponent), Radwanska and No. 29 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, a talented underachiever who's has a hot hand lately...." see full article

Serena Williams enters the U.S. Open with no true rival to stand in her way
"...She now comes to New York City to try and finish the job. It's her home Slam. It's an event she's won six times, including each of the last three years. It's the site of the first major she won. (Let's pause here and note that in a sport known for brief careers, Serena first won the U.S. Open in 1999, when Bill Clinton was President.) If she were to win it again, it would be her 22nd career major, tying her with Graf. "It does feel like everything is lining up perfectly," says Lindsay Davenport, the '98 U.S. Open champ, now a commentator for the Tennis Channel and part-time coach of rising U.S. star Madison Keys. "But what's really lining up is that Serena has been playing at another level this year."..." see full article

Serena Williams gets potentially tough US Open draw - Washington Post

"...Williams is the U.S. Open top seed for just the fourth time this year and she has gone on to win the tournament each time that has happened (2002, 2013 and 2014). In an interview with Omnisport, U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams said Williams is the greatest athlete of all time. Serena Williams is the ultimate champion. She knows what it takes to get to the top, Adams said. She started at the bottom from Compton, worked her way up through the ranks of the professional tour to No. 1 in the world. She has been No. 1 in the world for the last four years. She's been No. 1 multiple occasions...." see full article

"...So how is Serena's season going so far? Pretty amazingly, actually. Starting in January when she won the Australian Open, Serena has been pretty unstoppable this year.
