Competition: 2019 US Open women's singles

The Muchova victory helped Serena Williams for the 18th consecutive time to pass the third round of the US Open. The Williams sisters lost only once in this round in 1998, when they first competed.

Serena's performance improved significantly compared to the struggling Caty McNally two days ago. Against his highly-rated opponent Muchova, Serena only failed 15 times, seven of which came from double serves. The Williams sisters only let the Czech Republic win 45% of the serve in the match.

Muchova got off to a good start by constantly saving break-points and drawing 3-3 with Serena after the first six games. But for the rest of the match, the 44th player in the world won just two more games, all in the second set.

Muchova's unstable serve gives the opportunity for Serena to score winner points from return. The Williams sisters won two games to block the ball and won the first set with a score of 6-3, before having three more wins of Muchova's game to close the match after 73 minutes. In the next round, the owner of 23 Grand Slam will meet No. 22 seed Petra Martic.

Also in the fourth round, Serena also has second seed Ashleigh Barty. Defending champion Roland Garros defeated Maria Sakkari 7-5, 6-3 after an hour and 26 minutes. The victory helped Barty become the only player to remain until the second week of all four Grand Slams in 2019. In the fourth round, the 23-year-old will face No. 18 seed Wang Qiang.
