The last dance could be long. Serena Williamschampion of 23 Grand Slam singles titles, proved once again, at the age of 40, why for many she is the greatest tennis player of all time, qualifying once again for the third round of the US Open, the last tournament of her career and a competition she has won six times, at the expense of one of the best female players in the world.

With a performance reminiscent of times gone by, Williams, who hadn’t played at a similar level since reaching the Australian Open semi-finals in 2021, defeated the Estonian world number two. Anett Kontaveit – who appeared in excellent form – for 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-3 in a two and a half hour battle worthy of an epic evening session at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
In the third round Serena Williams will face the Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, recently arrived in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon and 46th WTA player.

At the end of the match she said she was not surprised at her level.
Between laughter, Williams reacted to Mary Jo Fernandez’s question. “I’m just Serena, as you know.”
