US Open 2017: Venus Williams overcomes Viktoria Kuzmova in three sets

Czech world number one Karolina Pliskova, Halep, Wozniacki, Wimbledon champion and world number three Garbiñe Muguruza, Ukraine's fourth-ranked Elina Svitolina, Britain's Johanna Konta and Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova all have a chance to become world number one at the US Open. "Looking back, we grew up in a two-bedroom house and there were seven people", she says.

Training for the U.S. Open is incredibly grueling - but it also requires a ton of self-care.

"I had no idea what she looked like, who she was, anything".

"I just want to win, and if you get the win, you get the ranking", said Williams, who was previously at No.1 in 2002.

World No 2 Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, victor of the WTA event in Toronto, and Britain's Johanna Konta will all feel that they have a chance, while Venus Williams will be eyeing her first title in NY since 2001. But she played incredible.

Xiaomi will show new flagship next week
Total, Xiaomi might be one of these three gadgets, or, if lucky, will announce all the new products immediately. The invite gives little information about the phone - but it does hint at the presence of a dual-camera setup.

"Serena is always the favorite when she plays and she's at a level on her own when she's playing her best tennis", Denmark's fifth-ranked Caroline Wozniacki said.

'I had no idea what she [Kuzmova] looked like, who she was, anything, ' Williams admitted after the match. The match will begin at 7 p.m. ET.

Other matches involving seeded players to finish quickly during Monday's opening session included 18th seed Caroline Garcia of France defeating Czech Tereza Martincova 6-0 6-1 and 31st seed Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia defeating Italian Camila Giorgi 6-3 6-4. "I think it would be quite obnoxious of me to come in here expecting I have a right to be in second week". She made her first Grand Slam semifinal in January at the Australian Open, but has lost in the first or second round in all eight of her previous U.S. Open appearances.

Big-serving 6-foot-10 Isner, whose favorite surface is the hard court, reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals in 2011 and could make another deep run this year if he doesn't let his return shots hinder his game.

The men's seeded losers included No. 21 David Ferrer, who was the runner-up at the 2013 French Open, No. 25 Karen Khachanov and No. 32 Robin Hasse.
