Serena Williams vs Anett Kontaveit Head-to-Head: Both the players will face each other for the first time in their career. Kontaveit, being the World No.2 enters the contest as the favourite. But she has struggled on the big stage like Grand Slam tournaments this year as she didn’t go past the second round in the three Grand Slam tournaments so far this year. If Williams brings forth her best game, she has a chance to topple the second seed.

Speaking ahead of the contest, Kontaveit said, “I’m not sure if I’ll experience something like this again. I think it’s a special moment for her. I am really going to enjoy the atmosphere being out there against the greatest player of all time. I’m really excited, really looking forward to it.”
