After delivering a ruthless and masterful performance against young Japanese qualifier Kurumi Nara in the second round match at Roland Garros, Serena Williams seems to have found her rhythm back on clay. Battering 36 winners and concluding the win in just 6-3, 6-2, Williams breezed into the third round of a tournament she has been crowned Champion in thrice previously. Chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam, the 37-year-old mother of one has to overcome the obstacle posed by her fellow American opponent, world number 35 Sofia Kenin.

Although Serena gave a lack-luster performance in her first match against Russia's Vitalia Diatchenko, she is gradually polishing herself and is once again in a formidable form. The only advantage Sofia Kenin possesses is her awfully young age and the fact that she had only to play one match so far in the tournament. The 20-year-old Kenin got a walkover in the second round after her Canadian opponent B. Andreescu pulled out.

Thus having rested for the majority of the week, Kenin should be raring to have a go at one of the biggest stars of American tennis. However, the bigger wonder will lie in observing how many tricks the youngster has up her sleeves to possibly upset the flow of the "Queen, Champion, Mom, Goddess".

In what is most likely to be a one-sided affair with Serena having the last laugh, it would still be interesting to see how the younger of the two Williams fares after playing two matches on the red dirt of Roland Garros. The statistics, too, would nod vigorously and uphold the better chance of Williams against Kenin and predict a straight set win in her favor. But in a sport as unpredictable as tennis, it would not come as a complete surprise if the well-rested Kenin manages to push Serena to her extremes and brings the match to a leveled affair.
