Having won six titles at the US Open, American sporting icon Serena Williams will look to finish on a high as she begins her final campaign at her home Slam. The 23-time Major winner, who is set to retire following the US Open, will face World No. 80 Danka Kovinic in the first round on Monday, August 29.

Williams hasn't had a memorable lead-up to the final Major of the season. The 40-year-old beat Nuria Parrizas Diaz in the first round of the Canadian Open but had to bite the dust against Belinda Bencic in her next match.

She then competed in Cincinnati, where reigning US Open champion Emma Raducanu showed her the door in straight sets.

Williams will hope for one last hurrah at the Slam where she last lifted the trophy in 2014.

Interestingly, the American and Danka Kovinic have never previously squared off on the tour before, which makes this contest even more intriguing.

Kovinic, a 27-year-old Montenegrin, has a career-high world ranking of 46, which she achieved in 2016. She is yet to taste glory on the WTA tour, with her best performance coming last year at the WTA 500 event in Charleston on clay. She finished as the runner-up to Veronika Kudermetova.

Kovinic, who has never made it past the second round at the US Open, comes into the New York Major on a four-match losing streak. Her confidence levels are likely to be low at the moment and she might find it difficult to get past the former World No. 1 in the first round.
