Serena Williams vs Suarez Navarro takes place on Tuesday night at the U.S. Open 2013 tennis tournament with Williams looking to blast her way through this quarter-final match and make her way through to the final four. The match will start at about 7.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Serena Williams is the defending champion at the U.S. Open 2013 tournament, and the top-ranked player will be looking to continue her good form following her 6-4, 6-1 victory over Sloane Stephens on Sunday.
That win would have been a sweet one for Williams as it avenged her loss to Stephens in the Australian Open 2013, which cut her Grand Slam push short.
That win also meant that she made her way through to the quarter-finals, and will face off against 18th seed Carla Suarez Navarro.
Suraez Navarro will be no push-over as well; she upset German eighth seed Angelique Kerber 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) earlier in the tournament and she will be hoping that if she can be at the top of her game, and if she can frustrate Williams, then she could cause an even bigger upset today.
Suarez Navarro has matched her best Grand Slam showing by reaching the last eight in this tournament, and she has been rewarded with a match against 16-time Grand Slam winner, Serena Williams.
That may be a daunting prospect, but Suarez Navarro has been in good form, hitting 45 winners and pressuring her opponent, Kerber, into 50 unforced errors to beat her after two hours and 41 minutes.
Coming into this match, Williams holds a 2-0 win record over Navarro, and has been in blistering form this tournament – she is yet to drop a set during the U.S. Open until now.
