Australian Open 2020 2nd round: Serena Williams vs Tamara Zidansek, where to watch, TV schedule, live stream details and more
- A preview of the second-round match of the Australian Open between Serena Williams and Tamara Zidansek
Second-round action begins at the Australian Open on Day 3 and there are two big matches lined up for the night session at the Rod Laver Arena.
Unlike sister Venus who fell to Coco Gauff, Serena Williams made short work of Anastasia Potapova in the first round - the Russian was literally blown away in less than an hour and failed to trouble the veteran who is aiming for her 24th Grand Slam title.
The 38-year-old American was in prime form en route to winning the Auckland Open as well, and although Zidansek was fluent in her first-round match getting against past Han Na-lae with ease, the Slovenian will need to come with an inspired performance to make a match out of the second-round fixture against an in-form and unrelenting Williams.
Serena failed to get past the quarterfinals last year, but won the Australian Open trophy as recently as 2017, while the 22-year-old Zidansek made it to the second round at Melbourne Park last year and will need nothing short of a miracle to better her 2019 performance.
