Six times US Open Champion and of the best women’s Tennis player Serena Williams will be fighting on the court for cementing her place in the quarter-finals of US Open 2020. Her opponent tonight is none other the Greek lady Maria Sakkari who recently upset her at the Cincinnati Masters, just before the start of the US Open. The Round of 16 match will be played on the hard-court at the Flushing Meadows, New York and will commence at 9:30 PM IST.
Williams is looking in fine touch and great rhythm in the tournament so far barring the first set of her previous match against Sloane Stephens where she lost 2-6 but she made up quickly and reversed the score by 6-2 in the next two sets. She’s been serving extremely well. Whereas on the other hand, the young Maria Sakkari is also riding high on confidence as she has had a pretty decent 2020 season so far. She must be very excited to repeat what she did to Serena at Cincinnati Open.
