American professional tennis player Serena Williams on Monday night, August 26, proved once again her superiority over Maria Sharapova beating her in the US open.

The 37-year-old Williams defeated Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-1 over in 59 minutes which is now her 19th straights win over the Russian tennis player.

On record, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have both met 22 times in their tennis careers, and the Russian only defeated the American twice.

Sharapova was banned for 15-months after being caught violating what is against the rules of tennis, and since she finished serving her suspension, she has been struggling.

The Russian knew that high-risk tactics were her only chance against a stronger, faster and more intelligent opponent like Serena, but they were responsible for her countless errors throughout.

And by the end of the first set, Williams had struck nine winners to a near-flawless three unforced errors by Maria Sharapova.

“It’s not an easy road. It’s never been. But I went through a shoulder procedure about four months ago.

''To find myself playing at a night match at the US Open with people excited about the match-up, it’s a pretty big deal. I’m fortunate to be a part of that,'' Sharapova said according to Guardian UK.
