What to watch Monday at US Open: Djokovic, Nadal left wrists

What to watch Monday at US Open: Djokovic, Nadal left wrists

Vinci - who went on to lose in the final to fellow Italian Flavia Pennetta - entered last year's tournament facing odds of 300-1 to win it. Serena had been 43-1 against unseeded opponents at the Open in her career.

The U.S. Tennis Association plans to shut the roof after the day session and open it for effect while Phil Collins performs "In the Air Tonight". I have been dominating the match comfortable after 6-1, 4-1, and I think in that game I could have the second break in the second set, no, and go 5-1. The total prize money compensation has been reported as $46.3 million-a 10 percent increase from previous year, making the Open the world's highest paying Grand Slam.

Serena Williams insists she didn't have any flashback nightmares when she first stepped on the grounds of the US Open this year.

"Some Americans recognized me", Vinci recounted, a mix of appreciation and bewilderment written on her face. She thwarted Williams at the Australian Open final in January and then nearly close to doing it again at Wimbledon. Her first serve percentage is just 59 percent, with 64 percent of those points won.

Every time someone's made the gumption of counting Serena Williams out, she's made them pay by making a comeback in style.

Since winning Wimbledon in July - and tying Graf with 22 grand slam titles - she's only played a handful of matches.

US Open 2016 starts on August 29, Monday, at Flushing Meadows in New York City.

After all, who doesn't like gifts? It shouldn't be just about entertaining a child for only just a few minutes. It's surprising Happy Meals have not garnered much more attention in recent years, but that might change.

"At the Olympics, I just practiced two days before playing my match", she said.

Kerber had the opportunity to dethrone Williams had she won at Cincinnati.

If Muguruza were to make it to the semifinals and then she faced Kerber, she would have to beat Kerber there and win in the finals to get the ranking.

As Serena Williams sets her sights on this week's U.S. Open, Gatorade is reliving her dominant career in pixelated form.

There are some similarities between the situations today and when Makarova upset Williams in Australia. It's because of her unexpected loss in the Cincinnati final to Karolina Pliskova that the contest between Williams and her has intensified, adding to the headiness of the tournament fortnight. There will be free admission to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and tennis fans will be able to attend the semifinals of both the men's and women's doubles tournaments, as well as the Champions Invitational, where former Grand Slam tournament champions (like John McEnroe) will be playing. She's a hard read, but it seems like she might be.

Novak Djokovic has been affected by issues in his private life and a lingering wrist injury since his shock Third Round exit in Wimbledon. "But I'm doing everything in my power with the medical team so I'm as close to 100 percent as possible, at least for the beginning of it".

"I think each [situation] is different", Williams said Friday, when asked to compare this year to 2015.
