Serena Williams eases past Karolina Muchova to reach US Open fourth round

Serena Williams eases past Karolina Muchova to reach US Open fourth round

Federer faces No. 15 David Goffin in the fourth round, where the five-time U.S. Open champion lost previous year. With that said, Serena has been rather consistent in two of her three matches and six of the seven sets have been dominating.

Williams suggested the victory over McNally was the type of win she would later be able to reflect on positively.

Over the course of her career, the 28-year-old Petra Martic had never made it past the second round in Flushing Meadows. What were you thinking?' But I'm alive. "I knew I had to play better, and I knew I could". Oh, my God, I'm not with her.

Nishikori, who could face Federer in the quarter-finals, stumbled after seizing a 5-1 edge in the final set and needed five match points to win. I've just got to keep playing and believing'.

The match proved a far more gruelling affair for Williams than she had in her opener, where she dismantled Maria Sharapova with one of her most dominant performances since returning from maternity leave in 2018. But that doesn't happen, so it's important for me to have those, like, really rough. She disrupted Williams' game with her backhand slice that skidded low into the cement, her heavy topspin forehand and her insatiable desire to constantly move forward to the net.

But Williams dug deep in a dramatic late-night session in NY to win 5-7 6-3 6-1 and progress to the third round.

Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam victor seeking his first US Open crown since 2008, rallied to beat 99th-ranked Bosnian Damir Dzumhur 3-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4.

Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Ashleigh Barty, and Elina Svitolina advanced Thursday to the third round of the U.S. Open 2019 in NY.

"I had to stop making errors", Williams said.

McNally said: "I've watched her so many times". The same night, McNally got her first victory in the main draw of a Grand Slam after receiving wild cards into the tournament for singles and doubles, where she will team with fellow teenage star Coco Gauff. There's so many things I like from his game. Williams, a six-time champion in NY, recovered from dropping the opening set to prevail 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 and set up a third-round showdown with either 29th seed Hsieh Su-Wei or Karolina Muchova.

Williams, still looking for her 24th Grand Slam title, marches into the fourth round and will face another crafty player in Petra Martic.
