Belarusian gets the unluck of the U.S. Open draw
According to the U.S. Open women’s draw, Wimbledon semifinalist Victoria Azarenka could play Venus Williams in the second round and Serena Williams in the third round.
After missing nearly a year of action because of a series of health problems, Serena Williams is seeded 28th for the U.S. Open, which followed the rankings rather than taking into account players’ past performances.
