Serena Williams rolls out, Barty and Pliskova at the rendezvous


Serena Williams (8th) did not drag on Friday in the 3rd round of the US Open. The American has outclassed Karolina Muchova (44) 6-3, 6-2 is qualifying for the round of 16. It also goes for Ashleigh Barty (2nd), solid against Maria Sakkari (29th) 7-5, 6-3, and Karolina Pliskova (3rd) who had to work against Ons Jabeur (62), 6-1, 4 -6, 6-4.

Williams and Barty as bosses

"Queen Serena" recited her scales! The former world number 1 victorious 6 times here at Flushing Meadows, dominated Friday in the 3rd round Karolina Muchova (44th) in 2 sets 6-3, 6-2. After being dislocated in the second round, where she loses his service for the first time in the match, the American immediately resumed her walk forward to win in 1h15 game.

Serena Williams (8th) qualifies for his 18th round of the US Open (like a Roger Federer) in 19 appearances. She will face Petra Martic (22nd), who fell a little earlier than Anastasija Sevastova (12th).

The world number 2, Ashleigh Barty she also held her range on Friday. The Australian, well helped by his service (11 aces) did not tremble in front of Maria Sakkari (29e), 7-5, 6-3.

Pliskova used

While this 3rd round of the US Open seemed only a formality for Karolina Pliskova after a quick first set, the world number 3 had to go for the victory against Ons Jabeur (62nd) Friday (6-1, 4-6, 6-4). The Tunisian, Caroline Garcia's winner in the first round, did not give up after losing the first set in 27 minutes. Touched on one knee, Jabeur even brought the doctor to be put a compress before starting the second set.

She then resisted Karolina Pliskova very friable on his faceoff. The Czech left 23 break points for his opponent, including 5 converted by the latter but finally won in 2:05 of play.

The march could still go up a notch in the round of 16 for the number 3 world, which will be opposed to Johanna Konta (16th), easily falling from Shuai Zhang (34) 6-2,6-3, for a remake of the Madrid final last May, won by the Czech.
