Serena started 2009 with an excellent win in the Australian Open defeating Dinara Safina in a one sided encounter and that was the catalyst for a great season. The French Open is always tricky for Serena and she did well in May to reach the Quarter-Finals before losing to eventual winner Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Serena then went onto win Wimbledon for the 3rd time in her career by beating sister Venus in straight sets which is no mean feat as Venus is considered one of the greatest grass court players of all time. That win meant Serena Williams held three of the four Grand Slams which is an incredible feat and is one that she will want to keep hold of at Flushing Meadow.

Her action packed baseline game, combined with probably the best service on the Tour, is an awesome sight when she is in full flow and it is little wonder that she has won all four Grand Slams.

In fact Serena has won a total of 13 Grand Slams, amazingly, she has beaten her older sister, Venus in six of them, although Venus got the better of her in the 2008 final at Wimbledon. She is a good US Open Tip to win this year and a US Open Free bet should be strongly considered.
