Serena Williams knew that we needed to improve this Friday against Karolina Muchova, World 44th, having been heckled by his young compatriot, Caty McNally. Serena Williams was able to reassure himself with a good quality copy and a 6-3, 6-2 win in just over an hour. The American has taken the lead directly over her opponent and has not been put in danger. The Czech quarter-finalist at Wimbledon, however, was a customer but never managed to shake his opponent. The legend therefore offers a new round of 16 against Petra Marticwho took the best in two sets on the seeded No. 12 Anastasija Sevastova 6-4, 6-3. A good match of the Croatian that will not take lightly for the first clash between the two women.

The one who is virtually world number 1 at the end of theUS Open had to bring down Maria Sakkari, never easy to maneuver, to make sure to stay it for the moment. In 1h28, Ashleigh Barty offered the Greek 7-5, 6-3 in a meeting quite mastered. Sakkari, who had beaten the Australian once in 4 confrontations, had to bow again. Yet with less than 50% of first ball, Barty has made 11 aces and has conceded only once his faceoff. The current World No. 2 accesses again to the eighth and can face the French Fiona Ferro if it also wins his match.

This Friday, start of the third round of theUS Open, and the serious things started with the victory of Karolina Pliskova in front of Ons Jabeur. The Tunisian girl of Caroline Garcia in the first round, shoved the No. 3 seed, but ended up losing in three sets and 2:08 of play 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. A forceps victory for the Czech, frustrated after losing his serve three times in the second set. In the next round, she will find Johanna Konta, which easily eliminated Zhang Shuai in two small sets 6-2, 6-3 in 75 minutes. Strong at the service with only 2 break points to save and in the game with more than 30 points winners, the Brittnic seems to have the weapons to annoy Pliskova not in great shape.

The fight for the throne continues!
Who will finish world number 1 at the end of the US Open ? Impossible to say for the moment but Ashleigh Barty in any case, virtually. Just behind Barty, Karolina Pliskova no doubt hoping to put her on the pole. But, that means making a big US Open.
In the evening, Elina Svitolina punished (6-2, 6-0) his compatriot Dayana Yastremska, unable to hold the ball. In the round of 16, the Ukrainian will face Madison Keys (No. 10). The American has mastered Sonia Kenin in two sets.
