Serena shakes off Stephens in 3 sets at US Open

Tennis

Serena Williams has come back from a slow start to beat Sloane Stephens 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the US Open’s third round.

Williams’ victory in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday allowed her to avoid what would have been her earliest exit at Flushing Meadows since she lost in the third round in her tournament debut all the way back in 1998.

Williams was 16 then and had yet to win a Grand Slam title. She turns 39 in three weeks and is pursuing her 24th major championship in singles.

Williams will face Maria Sakkari of Greece in the fourth round.
