Serena Williams beats Caty McNally after a difficult match


Serena Williams withstood a “difficult and rowdy” challenge from 17-12 months-old American wildcard Caty McNally on the US Open on Wednesday to hold her bid for a report-equalling 24th Grand Slam title intact. Williams, a six-time champion in New York, recovered from dropping the hole set to be triumphant 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 and installation a third-spherical showdown with both 29th seed Hsieh Su-Wei or Karolina Muchova.

McNally, who hadn’t been born whilst Serena Williams won her first Slam at the 1999 US Open, threatened a suffering Williams from the start earlier than the 37-year-old won 9 of the last 11 video games to escape underneath the roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Eighth seed Williams is looking for to healthy Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 Grand Slam crowns and had to acquire her mind after a first set littered with 15 unforced errors.

“I definitely treasure it because it’s important to have. I’ve won so many Grand Slams because of it. Obviously, I would be so lying if I said I enjoy the tough matches more. But I think looking back years later, I enjoy the tough matches more. But at the moment, in the weeks after, it’s definitely a different feeling.”
