Serena Williams vs. Danka Kovinic Match Preview
On the first night of the 2022 US Open, Serena Williams will compete against Danka Kovinic. This match will take place on Monday. This might very well be her last solo match ever, as she will also be playing doubles with her sister Venus after this one.

Following her performance in New York, Williams has said that she will “move away” from the sport of tennis. She made this announcement at the beginning of the month. During her farewell tour, she was defeated in two of her three matches, all of which were in the first round. Both of those matches were played against Emma Raducanu, who is the current winner of the US Open.
Williams, on the other hand, has never been eliminated in the first round of the US Open. In 1998, when she competed for the first time, she had the lowest performance. That was the year that she made it to the third round. She competed in the year 2020 and made it all the way to the last four, where she was ultimately eliminated by Victoria Azarenka, the eventual champion.
At the time, Kovinic had the 80th best rating in the world, and he made it to the third round of both the French Open and the Australian Open.
Williams is probably going to have a positive attitude about her chances given that Kovinic has only won six of her first sixteen matches so far this season.
In spite of the fact that he is 40 years old, she can still serve quite well and rack up a lot of aces. The American player goes straight for the kill right at the beginning of the match in order to put pressure on her rival. The winner of a record 23 Grand Slam titles has to keep his composure and stay away from careless blunders.
Kovinic is a hard worker who enjoys chasing the ball and wearing out her opponents. She does this by constantly moving. The tennis player, who is 27 years old, is stiff and serves double faults regularly. She lacks suppleness (eight in her most recent encounter in Granby). In order to defeat an experienced player like Serena, who will have the support of her supporters, she will need to play to the best of her ability.
In experts’ view, Williams will win the match with a score of 3-0.
Danka Kovinic vs Serena Williams Odds
