Serena, who turns 41 next month, revealed last week that she was preparing to “step away from tennis” and wanted to grow her business and her family. With this revelation, it is expected that after the US Open, the 23-time Grand Slam champion will drop out. Serena would certainly like to make her farewell tournament at the US Open a memorable one that she missed a year with a hamstring injury, returned to singles action at Wimbledon this year and would like to bow out by equaling Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slams. This is what makes his next match against Raducanu all the more important as it is the last preparatory tournament before the year-end Grand Slam.

Meanwhile, Emma Raducanu is struggling for form after a breakthrough last year when she won the US Open title as a qualifier. She faced first-round defeats at Sydney International, Abierto de Guadalajara and the Miami Open. She also faced second-round defeats at the Australian Open and the Indian Wells Masters. Her best performance to date was a quarter-final appearance at the Stuttgart Open, where she was defeated by Iga Swiatek.

His best performance on clay is a third-round appearance at the Madrid Open. She was beaten in the second round of Roland-Garros. At her home Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon, she was ousted in the second round. She enters the Cincinnati Masters after losing in the first round at the Canadian Open.

This will be the first and probably only meeting between Serena Williams, 40, and Emma Raducanu, 19. The winner will then face Victoria Azarenka or Kaia Kanepi in the second round.
