Angelique Kerber does herself proud

No one wants to meet Serena Williams in the first round of anything, let alone the U.S. Open, and especially on the first night, right after a huge ceremony honoring Althea Gibson. But Angelique Kerber of Germany did not let the occasion hamper her game. Kerber got back an amazing number of balls, placing them well enough to keep rallies going, and sometimes placing them well enough to position herself quite strategically. What might have been a complete snooze turned into a lively and entertaining match. Final score: Williams def. Kerber, 6-3, 7-5
