Australian Open 2020: Serena Williams vs Wang Qiang Where to watch and Live streaming details
- Serena Williams remains in hot pursuit of her 24th Grand Slam as prepares to take on China's Wang Qiang in the third round.
Serena Williams seems to be right on course towards getting her elusive 24th Grand Slam title. Chasing Margaret Court's record, Williams is on the quest of winning a record seventh Australian Open title. She defeated an obstinate Tamara Zidansek in her second-round clash to set up a date with Wang Qiang in the third round.
It would be unfair to say that the 23-times Grand Slam Champion, Williams did not have much difficulty in taming Zidansek. Although the scorecard looks like a one-sided affair, Serena wasn't on her best form but the true champion that she is, she soon found her way out, defeating Zidansek 6-2, 6-3 to go forward to the third round. In her opening bid, Williams crushed Anastasia Potapova and even served her a bagel set.
For Wang Qiang, this is her second consecutive year in the third round of the Australian Open. She ousted Fiona Ferro in straight sets to enter the third round. Williams had met her at the 2019 US Open quarter-finals and demolished the 27th seed fair and square. If Serena is in her usual rock-solid form, it will be difficult for Qiang to disrupt the 38-year-old player's rhythm. The winner of this match stands the chance to meet either defending champion Naomi Osaka or 15-year-old Coco Gauff, either of which will be an interesting encounter.
