of Italy will be aiming to make a run at the US Open in Flushing Meadows New York and perhaps win the title for the 1st time in her career.
Last year Kim Clijsters of Belgium won the US Open for the 2nd time in her career when she beat the Danish player Caroline Wozniacki in the final in straight sets 7-5 6-3.
On her way to the final Clijsters also managed to beat both of the Williams sisters Venus and Serena, Serena is now the world number 1 and this year she has won both the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
At her best Serena can beat anyone in the world and she last won the US Open back in 2008 when she beat the former world number 1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia in the final in straight sets.
Serena and Venus are also ranked number 1 in the world in doubles.
