US Open: Serena Williams returns with a bang!

Serena Williams with her daughter Alexis Olympia

"The first match of a grand slam is always good to get through. It has all the really strong elements, from the leather to that really cool stretchy material", Williams told US Vogue. "No one's flawless, [they're] always talking about our bodies and what we can wear and what we can't wear and I don't hear too much about the guys, do you?"

I believe it was Lil' Kim who once said, "No matter what people say, we got it going on".

The AP reported that "Bernard Giudicelli says the tournament that Williams has won three times is introducing a dress code to regulate players" uniforms because "I think that sometimes we've gone too far'" and that "One must respect the game and the place".

Williams' preparation for the year's final major was not ideal, having played just three matches on US hard courts and having to postpone her pre-tournament press conference in NY by a day because she wasn't feeling well.

"I can not say much about this match, just that I didn't really feel the ball", French Open champion Halep said.

China trade talks fail to make breakthrough
The US accuses China of unfair trading practices, particularly on technology. "Naturally they'll retaliate a little bit", U.S. The talks were to continue this morning, but the Treasury has not specified what topics are being discussed.

"I knew I had two loves-tennis and fashion-and had to find a way to make them coexist", Williams said earlier this year.

Neither Williams sister was willing to look too far ahead, Venus noting that Halep's ouster was proof of just how risky any opponent can be. "The higher you're ranked, the more that people come for you".

Defending champion Sloane Stephens encountered late resistance but held on for a 6-1, 7-5 victory over Russian Evgeniya Rodina.

She next faces Germany's Carina Witthoeft, with a possible third-round clash with 16th-seeded sister Venus in the offing. At just 11 months old, she is already a social media star with over 4 lakh followers on her verified Instagram account.

Two-time Grand Slam victor Victoria Azarenka, a former world number one now ranked 80th in the world, defeated Viktoria Kuzmova 6-3, 7-5 to st up a meeting with Australian Daria Gavrilova, who steamrolled Sara Sorribes 6-0, 6-0.
