Serena Williams, 37 looking sharp and good as she brushed aside her old time rival Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-1 in over just an hours to advance to round 2 of the U.S Open 2019.Serena Williams Destroys Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-1 at the U.S Open 2019

Williams took the first set 6-1 in just 24 minutes, winning the final five games after Sharapova held the first time she served.

Williams has 23 Grand Slam singles titles and Sharapova has five, and they had met at every other major tournament. But while Williams is seeded No. 8 and was a finalist last year in Flushing Meadows, Sharapova is far off the form that carried her to No. 1.

Williams has dominated their rivalry, winning 18 straight to take a 19-2 lead, and appeared on her way to easily extending that after winning 27 points to Sharapova’s 12 in the opening set.
