“It’s been years, since the ’90s, since I won a match in straight sets. It felt really good. I was like, ‘Serena, just be Serena and close it out,’ and I know I can do that, so it felt really good.” • Sources have confirmed that split the first 10 games before brining it home with a win of 7-5, 6-3 against Kristie Ahn.
