Serena Williams shrugs off US Open jitters for karaoke

Curated by

 

Serena Williams could face Maria Sharapova for her second straight major semifinal as she seeks to complete the Grand Slam at the U.S. Open. In the third round, Williams could face 29th-seeded Sloane Stephens, who beat her in the 2013 Australian Open and is coming off her first WTA title in Washington this month. Second-seeded Simona Halep and fourth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, who lost to Williams in last year’s U.S. Open final, are in the other half of the draw.

 

 

  • Another up-and-coming U.S. player, 19th-seeded Madison Keys, could await in the fourth round.
  • On the men’s side, second-seeded Roger Federer and No. 3 Andy Murray could meet in one semifinal, with No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 4 Kei Nishikori, last year’s runner-up, in the other.
  • Another possible quarterfinal foe is 12th-seeded Swiss teen Belinda Bencic, who recently upset Williams in Toronto en route to a breakthrough title.
