Serena Williams vs Danka Kovinic live score, results, highlights of 2022 US Open

Serena Williams has always had a flair for the dramatic.

Now that her illustrious tennis career is coming to an end – Williams announced earlier this month her intention to hang up her racquet after the 2022 US Open – the question is: can she do it again?

Williams has not won a major tournament since 2017 when she won the Australian Open. It’s been even longer since she last won the US Open – she last lifted the silver trophy in 2014.

Perhaps one last great trophy is a dream too far out of reach. But for Williams, arguably the greatest tennis player of all time, the chance to make an indelible mark on the court she has been so dominant on is enticing.

Williams has won her first major trophy at the US Open. It was 1999 and Williams was still a teenager, unaware of the success she would achieve as her career progressed. She stretched across the green and blue pavement while her iconic white pearls swirled in the fall air.

Now she’s 40. And while athletics may have waned, Williams’ desire for “the moment” hasn’t. With a first-round clash against Danka Kovinic of Montenegro, that’s a real strength as Williams wants to leave fans with positive memories of their last major competition.
