U.S. Open postcard: Serena Williams faces another tough test | NOLA.com

Flushing Meadows, N.Y. – Saturday was a long, early practice (9:15 – 11:15 a.m.), after Serena’s come from behind win (3-6, 7-5, 6-0) the night before against fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. I didn’t get back to my hotel until 11 p.m.

Serena arrived later, since she had to go to the post match press conference, after our cool–down in the fitness center.

No rest for the weary. Or, as my two Army Ranger friends tell me: “you can rest when you’re dead.”

Saturday after the practice, we had an excellent gym session. I told Williams that she made me very happy with her commitment to excellence with our drills, which lasted about half an hour.

Today, Williams faces off against another American – Madison Keys – on center court in the Arthur Ashe stadium. She follows the match between her sister Venus and Anett Kontaveit. Let’s hope for back-to-back Williams’ wins.
