US Open R1: (2) Defending Champion Serena J. Williams d. Glatch 6-4 6-1

Spotty in the first set for sure but picked it up in the second set. Its typical Serena who often plays down to her opponents. First round of a major so she's workin through some things but the straight set win was never in doubt. She will get better. Glatch isn't the kind of player who is going to bring the fire out from Serena.

Glatch Get better honey cuz it sounds like you have all kinds of stuff goin on with the back and your scooter accident and good lord.

Serena Did what you needed to in round 1.

At least Serena will peak at the right time, I hope.

Typical 1R from Ree. Poor start, but strong finish.

Nice work

The dress was slamming as was that running backhand flicker late in the second!!! Serena just said she's got those butterflies in first rounds trying to keep that record of not losing in the first round intact.

Does anyone else have a record like that of no losses in the first round of a slam?

Looks like Serena is adopting the same method she used during early rounds of last year's US Open. Anytime her avg 1st serve is 98...

Came out a bit slow but finished strong.

Win it Serena.
