Serena Williams battles into US Open third round by beating Margarita Gasparyan

Prediction and head to head Serena Williams vs. Margarita Gasparyan

Prediction and head to head Serena Williams vs. Margarita Gasparyan

Stephens dumped Williams out of the 2013 Australian Open during her sensational run to the semi-finals as a 19-year-old.

Stephens, who won the U.S. Open title in 2017, was wearing a face mask with the words "No Justice/No Peace" emblazoned on it to draw attention to racial injustice in the United States.

Sofia Kenin, of the United States, returns a shot to Leylah Fernandez, of Canada, during the second round of the US Open tennis championships, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, in NY.

Her serve only so-so at times, her footwork a bit off, Williams got by and got through Thursday night against an opponent ranked just 117th, beating Margarita Gasparyan 6-2, 6-4 and letting out a cry of "Yes!" at the end that reverberated in a almost empty Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Serena Williams, of the United States, follows through on a shot to Margarita Gasparyan, of Russian Federation, during the third round of the U.S. Open tennis championships, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, in NY.

Maladenovich, who was the top seed in the women's doubles with partner Taima Babs, said earlier that she felt trapped inside the "bubble in the bubble".

The 38-year-old is seeking a record-equalling 24th singles Grand Slam title at a subdued, spectator-free Billie Jean King US National Tennis Center in NY.

"I feel like I found a groove". It remained closed for the match that followed - Andy Murray against Felix Auger-Aliassime - and a serious downpour loudly pelted the roof. "Before it was, like, nearly a life-and-death situation for me to win a match".

Williams requires one more Grand Slam to equal Margaret Court's singles record, but has been stuck on 23 titles since winning the 2017 Australian Open.

Bay City Rollers bassist Ian Mitchell dead at 62
Writing on Instagram , he sent his "deepest condolences" to Mitchell's widow Wendy "and Ian's legion of fans around the world". In a statement at the Bay City Roller Facebook page it says, We are deeply saddened by the news of Ian Mitchell's death.

The 33-year-old is trying to rebuild his injury-ravaged career with a new metal hip that was installed last year.

In early men's matches, second seed Dominic Thiem celebrated his 27th birthday with an easy straight-sets win against India's Sumit Nagal.

"I'm just happy to get through it and focus on the next round", said Williams, who called a strip of tape on the outside of her left leg "preventative".

I don't want to get a warning but this is not normal.

And third seed Daniil Medvedev appears against American wildcard J.J. Wolf in a last-32 match.

Elsewhere, sixth seed Italian Matteo Berrettini brushed aside France's Ugo Humbert 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6) while Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut progressed against Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic.

The suspension of professional sport delayed her comeback but she has certainly made up for lost time.

"Coming from three year of absence on the tour, you always have your doubts".
