US Open R1: Williams Sisters d. Lee-Waters/Moulton Levy 6-4, 6-0

Go sisters!

I only followed the last few games on live-scoring but one of the sisters was down 15-40 on her serve. Glad they still got the bagel!

More significantly, Serena sprained her ankle. Ankle was mummified and in a big cast, apparently.

Was it definitely a sprain? I saw it but didn't think it was that serious.

They started slow , but really picked it up and their opponents helped them a lot too so happy Vee's serve was never broken

I doubt it's serious--she moved along fine after the tapping

Venus at the net and serving

She was borderline useless returning today, not sure what to take from that. Serena was sharp, at times.

Did just enough. Well done to the American girls, I'm fb friends with them and they were HYPED for this match, glad they could start as well as they did! They'll be happy!

Venus' served was very slow. I am wondering if she was saving it for her match tomorrow or if her back is injured again. Serena moved fine after the ankle injury, but she won't know how it really feels until she wakes up in the morning.

Didn't see the first set, Serena seemed unhindered by the taping so i'm not too worried, i hope venus returns better tomorrow against kerber

I think Venus was going easy with her serve. Was there. She did crack a 113 mph fault, but there was really no need to let the bombs loose today. At least I hope she was going easy.

I always feel bad when the entire stadium yells "Serena!" and Venus is just minding her own business. Then there's the one fan who's like, "...Go VENUS!"

I yelled for both! It was a pleasure working their matches I enjoyed this one and 2009.
