Were Rafael Nadal’s struggles in the first round simply a case of opening-night jitters or something more serious? Time will tell. Either way, his first match as defending U.S. Open champion had plenty of rough edges.
Venus Williams takes big tournaments like the U.S. Open one match at a time. Not a bad plan for a player who’s played only one match since Wimbledon.
Kim Clijsters’ withdrawal was the latest bit of news that — on paper, at least — appeared to open things up for Maria Sharapova, a three-time major winner who, of late, has been playing her best tennis since shoulder surgery derailed her in late 2008.
Who will take home the 2011 US Open title? Ann Liguori breaks it all down — from burned fingers to shoulder pain, history is at stake at Flushing Meadows.
Serena Williams at No. 28 doesn’t make sense. She’ll face top players early in the women’s draw and prevent better players from getting to the later rounds — where they should be competing. That is what the seeding system is all about!
Three-time U.S. Open champion Serena Williams could face No. 4-seeded Victoria Azarenka in the third round, and two-time winner Venus Williams could meet No. 22 Sabine Lisicki in the second.
Serena Williams is back home recuperating after two health scares she describes as “extremely hard, scary, and disappointing.”
Kim Clijsters won a second consecutive U.S. Open championship and third overall Saturday night, easily beating Vera Zvonareva 6-2, 6-1 in a final that lasted exactly one hour and lacked any drama.
Kim Clijsters is one win from her second straight U.S. Open title after beating Venus Williams in three sets Friday for her 20th straight victory at Flushing Meadows.
In the featured semifinal at the U.S. Open on Friday, Kim Clijsters tries to stay on track for her second straight title after a 2 1/2-year layoff during which she got married and had a baby girl, Jada.
Esther Vergeer of the Netherlands — the world’s No. 1 ranked female wheelchair tennis player — hasn’t lost a match since January of 2003.
Vera Zvonareva let her opponent self destruct, taking advantage of 60 unforced errors to win her U.S. Open quarterfinal 6-3, 7-5 over Kaia Kanepi on Wednesday.
Nobody can say Kim Clijsters took an easy path to her U.S. Open title last year. She played both Williams sisters. This year, she’ll only play one.
Venus Williams struggled with her serve. She kept tugging at her dress. Every bit as big a nuisance was her opponent, Shahar Peer.
Her play sparkling as much as her sequined dress, Venus Williams easily eliminated 185th-ranked qualifier Mandy Minella of Luxembourg 6-2, 6-1 on Friday night at the U.S. Open.
