(8) Serena Williams Def. Yung Jan Chan 6-1 6-3

Good Win Serena She looks much better then she did at Wimbledon, still isn't moving too well but regaining some of her stride Good Luck next round, It's sad that one of the Williams sister is not going to make it past the 4th round.

For Chan that she had to draw Serena after some convincing qualifying wins.. she has a nice backhand

Nice comeback for Serena in the second. I liked Chan's energy.

Chan played well the last few points

Serena still not playing up to standard... she was in control of the match and won with her experience.

Yung-Jan played well in the 2nd set. I'm happy she made Serena play for the win.

And kudos to Serena for sticking up for Yung-Jan during the oncourt interview.

Serena really impressed me, she should continue to get better and she'll be an even bigger contender for the title.

Serena's backhand looks good, but she wasn't driving the forehand enough...really tentative on it.

Really, don't even look at me...

Imagine being 16 years old and playing in your first WTA Tour main-draw match EVER. At the US Open. In Arthur Ashe Stadium. Against Serena Williams. Under those circumstances, I think she did very well to win four games, even against a rusty Serena.

Good win for Serena to not make the match go three sets.

I was impressed with Chan's backhand.
