Serena Williams Returns to Form for an Impressive Start in the US Open Tennis 2011
After winning the Stanford Classic Tournament, American tennis player Serena Williams proved that she was ready to compete in the US Open. And now she has shown that she was not just ready to play, but ready to impress.
In her first game of the US Open, Williams won against one of the most hotly anticipated talents of this tournament, Jovanovski. The 19 year old soon realized that Williams was back on form, and was unable to beat her. After this, there was no time to relax for the talented American tennis player, no time to play Party Poker. or see the sights, as she whizzed off into preparation for the next match with Michaella Krajicek.
This is great news for Williams, as she has been plagued with bad luck and injury in recent years. Missing last year’s US Open due to an injury to her foot followed by other serious health concerns, she was especially glad to be here this year. She also was not able to attend the Australian and French Opens which should make her successful return now even more special.
After winning her first match at Wimbledon this year, Williams showed just how much it meant to her by breaking down in tears. She said she was just so grateful to be able to play again, and had really wanted to win a match here. This meant that she was also able to keep up her record of always winning in the first round of a grand slam.
This is a very impressive statistic, considering that she has played in Grand Slams 44 times. In addition to this, she has been the number one player in the world during a total of 123 weeks of her career. Hopefully, she is able to have even more success in the future.
