Serena Williams enters her second-round US Open match against Annette Kontavate in an unfamiliar position. In other words, a loser.

Williams, tennis’s most dominant player for nearly two decades, has long favored winning every tournament he attends.

But not this time:

  • She has not won a Grand Slam event since 2017.
  • She has been plagued with nagging injuries in recent years including her ankle, back, left knee and right shoulder.
  • Since returning to the tour in June, she has suffered first-round losses at several major tournaments, including Wimbledon. Currently ranked 605th in the world.
  • Oh yeah, she turns 41 next month.

Odds Makers Support ContabateThe hard-hitting Estonian was ranked No. 2 in the world to win tonight’s match. The two women have never faced each other, but Kontaveit, 26, is a step ahead in her competition against Danka her Kovinic, whom Williams won in straight sets on Monday night.

Then again… this is Serena we’re talking about.

She relaxes at Arthur Ashe Stadium, which has won the US Open six times. She can still hit the ball harder than most women on tour. Her competitiveness is legendary.

And Monday night will have a very exciting New York crowd going head-on behind her.

When Williams rolls and Kontaveit rattles around in a rowdy and hostile stadium, anything can happen. If Williams beats Kontaveit tonight, she can beat anyone in this tournament.
