Why Serena Williams Won't Celebrate Alexis Olympia's First Birthday

Williams has had a hard build-up to the tournament, suffering her most one-sided loss ever when she won just a single game against Johanna Konta in San Jose - she subsequently revealed she had learned just before the match that the man who killed her half-sister had been released from prison.

Linette could not cope with her power and accuracy in a 28-minute set, winning just nine points as Williams sealed victory with a 114mph ace out wide.

The new ruling sparked an outcry among Williams' fans, but the champ herself, who suffered life-threatening blood clots after giving birth to daughter Olympia a year ago, took it in stride.

"When I was thinking about outfits for Serena, I was thinking about her playing the game and her aesthetic while she is".

As Halep pondered why she has been unable to produce her best tennis in NY - a semifinal run in 2015 notwithstanding - big-hitting Kanepi was feeling right at home in the Big Apple.

"The first set was tight".

"I'm just going to be on that road till I get there". "The first match of a grand slam is always good to get through".

"I think I'm getting there", added Williams, who reached the final at Wimbledon only to fall short of matching Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles.

Iconic tennis star Billie Jean King was also in attendance and weighed in on the catsuit debate with some stern words for those who are attempting to decide how Williams looks on the tennis court. I'm a quiet person, so maybe I like the smaller places. "It is tough. But it's OK".

The manner of the victory, however, mattered little to a home crowd that was just happy to see her back on court after sitting out a year ago. "We are the number one".

Defending champion Sloane Stephens eased into the second round with a 6-1 7-5 victory over Russian Evgeniya Rodina.

"It is such a great feeling to be back out here", said Williams. "I like the atmosphere in the tournament and in the city".
