Serena Williams Elegantly Passionately Wins Round 2 of Her Final US Open Campaign


Serena Williams? GOAT? Yes, indeed.

Serena won her second round of her US Open campaign tonight in three sets. She just took it. She made it look easy. No one expected her to win the first round, but she’s clobbered two much younger women (who are very good players).

Does it help that both Gladys Knight and Dionne Warwick were there? I think so. I am in awe.

And PS I’ve met Serena a couple of times socially. She is lovely and has a great sense of humor. So this is all very cool.
