NEW YORK (AP) - Venus Williams has overcome a bad knee and a big
deficit to win her first-round match at the U.S. Open.
The No. 3-seeded Williams, twice the champion at Flushing
Meadows, was down a set and a break before coming back to beat
47th-ranked Vera Dushevina of Russia 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-3 Monday
Serena Williams has begun the quest for her
fourth U.S. Open title with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Alexa Glatch.
Former U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters was another
opening day winner in her return to Grand Slam tennis since
retiring in 2007 to start a family.
Men's top seed Roger Federer had a pretty easy
first day at the U.S. Open. The Swiss star and five-time defending
champion ran his U.S. Open winning streak to 35 matches by
dispatching 18-year-old NCAA tennis champion Devin Britton of
Mississippi 6-1, 6-3, 7-5.
