Serena Williams v Taylor Townsend Live
Serena Williams will be up against fellow American Taylor Townsend in the first round of the upcoming US Open which starts off on Monday, August 25. The fixture does not appear to be easy for the top seeded player in the US Open as Townsend has been widely regarded to be one of the upcoming greats in the women’s tennis circuit in the United States.
Taylor Townsend had announced herself to the tennis circuit when she ran away with the Australian Open Juniors’ singles title in 2012. The eighteen year old has had a good year in Grand Slams as well as she progressed into the second round at the Roland Garros before losing her first match at Wimbledon on straight sets despite performing well.
As we take a look at this upcoming fixture, Serena Williams is the undoubted favourite. However, Taylor Townsend can be expected to replicate the success of her opponent in coming years. Serena Williams has won the Cincinnati Open in preparation for the US Open where she beat the likes of Ana Ivanovic, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic, and Sam Stosur.
Taylor Townsend, meanwhile, progressed into the fourth round at the same tournament before falling to F Pennetta. A hard fought contest is on the cards although the junior Serena Williams is expected to come out victorious at the end of the match.
