US Open 2019: Serena Williams beats Petra Martic despite medical timeout

Serena Williams in action against Catherine McNally of the United States of America during their match on the third day of the US Open.

With this win, Martic has now been among the top 16 female tennis players in all four grand slams of her career.

Martic continued her excellent streak with the start of the second set, taking away to her rival in the first game.

Petra Martic is coming off a straight sets win over Anastasija Sevastova that took 19 games to decide.

However, Williams was able to see off Czech Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-2 with a minimum of fuss on Arthur Ashe.

Donning an all-denim ensemble, Hadid offered up some fist bumps, standing ovations and a few words of encouragement while shouting from her seat. A deft dropshot on Williams's first opportunity clinched her the one-set lead.

"This is something I've been carrying for quite a while now", Djokovic said.

"Obviously I didn't know how the body would react and I am just glad to finish the match tonight". "I don't really think about it, but it's cool", she said. "I'm definitely dedicated to tennis, but I'm definitely going to go home and I have a huge board where I'm going to lay out the order of the show".

"It's just a bit frustrating more than anything, especially when the level is that low and there are that many errors and the energy is not kind of there", Federer said. "She just overall played really well". Williams broke serve immediately with a piercing return, then the youngster gave up the second break with a double fault, the pressure of Williams' return suffocating her.

Federer has lost the opening set in each of his first two matches before flipping a switch and cruising to the finish line in dominant fashion. The only time she was beaten as early as even the third round in NY was in her tournament debut all way back in 1998 - when she was just 16 herself.

Djokovic's title defence looked to be in jeopardy in his previous match when he received treatment on his shoulder several times, an issue which he said had impacted his serve and backhand. "Sounds scripted. Actually, I'd rather not be tested in every match".

"She's young. It's her first time in a stage like this and only her second Grand Slam, so I think there's a lot to gain from it", said Lynn Nabors-McNally, Caty's mother, who also helps coach her. It was really a great day for me.
