Zendaya, supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid and golfer Tiger Woods were among the celebrities who came into the Arthur Ashe Stadium, New York to watch Serena Williams' first match at the US Open tournament. Amid the speculation that this is going to be Williams' last tournament of her remarkable tennis career, there was a huge turnout to watch the sporting icon take the court against Danka Kovinic. Williams emerged victorious in her match at the first round of the US Open as she defeated Kovinic 6-3, 6-3.

Williams, who is a six-time US Open champion, has a 42-0 in US Open rounds 1 and 2. She won her first US Open back in 1999 aged 17. The night drew 29,000 folks, a high for the tournament, more than 23,000 were in Ashe; thousands more watched on a video screen outside the arena, and the place was as loud as ever. Certainly louder than any other first-round match in memory.
