Australian Open 2019: Serena Williams beats Eugenie Bouchard in second round

Australian Open 2019: Serena Williams beats Eugenie Bouchard in second round

She wore a tutu dress; an ensemble was a collaboration between designer Virgil Abloh and Nike to play at US Open in front of her home crowd.

"When I was eight years old I saw her playing some of the Grand Slams", Yastremska said. So I knew 'alright, Serena.

"Bouchard took her share of criticism over the years but she deserves some real credit here", said longtime tennis broadcaster Robert Bettauer. What's interesting is that she teamed the outfit with fishnet stockings that are nearly invisible should one see her from a little far.

When asked if she had a name for her new look, she jokingly replied, the "Serena-tard".


"I'm super excited", Bouchard told reporters in Melbourne.

"I was having issues with my knee towards the end of a year ago and I ran out of time (to play any lead-up tournaments)", she said.

Serena Williams of the United States in action during the match against Germany's Tatjana Maria at the Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia.

"Literally the best win of my career", she said on court. 6-7 (9), 6-4 6-4; Frances Tiafoe beat No. 5 Kevin Anderson 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, 7-5; No. 14 Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Viktor Troicki 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5; No. 27 Alex de Minaur beat Henri Laaksonen 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 6-3. She landed magazine covers and sponsorship deals, and was heralded as the sport's next great star.


Japan's Osaka, seeded four, begins her campaign in the night match on Rod Laver Arena against Poland's Magda Linette following Novak Djokovic's first outing.

Court, 76, said ahead of the tournament that she doesn't worry about the prospect of being overtaken by Williams and can always take comfort from winning 40 Grand Slam doubles titles to go with her singles crowns.

At this point in her long career, Williams transcends the sport in many ways, and is well aware of her own influence and reach. "I'm going to try to win her. I hope obviously if he does get surgery that that does go well for him". The tennis champion made quite the impression when she chose to wear a stylish teal romper and a pair of fishnets! In her first match of the ongoing Australian Open, tennis fans got all of that and more.

Williams will play Eugenie Bouchard in the second round.
