1:42 incredible point! WOW
The GOAT still playing at 40 years old. This is something we shouldn’t take for granted. It’s literally so rare to see something like this. The way she prevailed after facing a couple of break points portrayed her level of mental toughness. Spectacular
It is so tough to watch Serena's movement be more difficult, but watching her get through matches like this with her craftiness and placement will always be so refreshing to watch. We have to savor every match we still have with the GOAT. :)

It's not about winning or losing but seeing Serena on court still winning incredible points is such a delight
Serena’s serve is her biggest weapon next to her mental strength. When her serve is working this well, it’s hard to beat her.
Well done, Queen!!!
MUST READ— did you know this? 🎾

This was one of the most incredible matches by some crazy stats. Serena coming back after a year at almost 41, the absolute GOAT and legend. On the other side Parrizas, who in 2017 was told to hang the racket because of a career ending injury sitting between 200-300 wta for over 10 years. After 2 years without hitting, starts dating Carlos Boluda, world champion at 10,12,14,16,18 and under who was gonna be the next nadal back in the day. He decides to hang his racket to help her make a last try for it. Their story of love propels her to pick up her racket, now miraculously injury free, adapt her serve to be able to keep playing and in one year is one of the 3 oldest players to ever crack the top 100 at 30 years old. With a whole new life after 30, and by part of a lucky loser this week she makes main draw ranked #57 gets a chance to play the GOAT in center court.

What disparity and how incredible are the changes we are seeing in age and competitiveness 😍😍😍
I was at this game. So crazy to think I attended one of her last matches ever. She’s the GOAT!

So happy to see Serena is still hanging in there. Even though she would have finished this match in 50 minutes fifteen years ago, I appreciate her fight against Father Time.

I’m crying because Serena said today Aug 9th, that the U.S. Open will be her last. She’s retiring afterwards! I thought I would take it better than I am! She’s the Queen and the Goat, with nothing else to prove! I know no one can duplicate her awesomeness!!! 😥 There will never be a greater player!!
GOAT! So great to Serena on court again. Hope she can continue to elevate her game and work her way through the draw.

That champion serve never left...🥳

I think after so many recent losses she’s was just playing really cautiously and taking her time. Considering that it was good to see her come through in straights.

Lately she’s been losing these types of matches and not staying focused enough when a few things (like the let courts and balls right on the line) don’t go her way but today she did what you have to do sometimes - just keep the ball in - because she knew her opponent could never over power her.

Players like this make Serena have to create more of her own pace but this is a good practice match for the match with Bencic next round.

Gotta feel sorry for Diaz, she had a lot of break points but when She had them Serena served amazing.

So great to see Serena’s playing… She just brings something else to the court… Thank you Queen. ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥👏🏾👏🏾👑
Serena might be sore tomorrow, but what a way to come back in *both sets* and to take it in straight sets. The game has changed so much, but Serena advancing is putting her back into contention to challenge in future matches/tournaments.

Barbara Justice:
Wow what a match !! I was on the edge of my seat enjoyed it very much I knew you could do it Serena keep up the good work love ya
Wow, Serena looks really fit. She could still be better but she's looking good with her movement. I think she's mad about the split with her coach so she's there to prove him wrong. I feel bad really for Halep who is now being coached by Serena's former coach because Serena's going to make sure she doesn't lose to whomever Patrick coaches.

I hope she can get at least 3 matches here and 3 matches in Cincinnati!!! That would giver her match play leading to US Open.
Israel Moore
Israel Moore:
Serena was doing Serena things. Her serve got better as the match went on...I was shocked by the three double faults, especially when Serena rarely double faults. But how she played, I rate her match play as a 7/10. I am concerned with her errors, though, since she may be going against Bencic in the next round, and Bencic is an Olympic champion on hard court, but Serena leads the head-to-head. Technically I give bencic the edge, but mental and fighting spirit is Serena's all day, so we will see. Critics say she is at least 30 lbs overweight, but Diaz lost to her, and she weighs like nothing. My cocern in her lungs. I don't think her lungs have fully recovered after they treated her for the clots. Serena looks out of breath during the first few rallies, which never was an issue for her, "overweight" or not. But that breakpoint save at 1:42. People that say she doesn't have the movement or speed anymore lied! Serena is probably one of the best defenders of all time. I don't think people give her enough credit for her returns and defense. Her returns and defense are very underrated. She is probably one of the best, if not the best returner and defender in tennis.

Very glad she got a win under her belt. I look forward to seeing how she fares for the rest of this tournament. I bet rhat win meant alot since she hasnt had a win n a very long time.

I’m so happy she was able to come out on top… we’re in the last moments of the tennis Queen playing. 🥹
Serena’s ball speed and movement has slowed down considerably but at least she’s out here playing (and winning). A shame that she has a tough draw 😴
Jonathan Lampe
Jonathan Lampe:
40 years old and still hitting the ball so well. Serena yr the most amazing player off all time !!!
Peter Botero
Peter Botero:
Serena very modestly complimented Nuria on how well she played when they met at the net. Very classy! But as Kylo Ren would say, "Look how old she has become..." Cant hide the years. Hope she advances though. Its like watching Tiger play golf, she elevates interest, period.
J Ton
J Ton:
Serena running reminds me of a video game when your fatigue starts raising and your character gets slower and slower.

She's still got the hammer, and looks like her serving was very clutch.

I'll be curious to see if she can build to hanging in consistent long rallies. The racquet talent is still there, obviously- as well as the determination.

Willie Jones
Willie Jones:
She can’t move like she used to, the body simply gets older, but it sure was cool to see her win that long point. I’m 42 and it makes me feel a little youthful seeing a 40yo win a professional match at a big tournament. I noticed she used more variety in this match. I like it. Very selective for when she attacks.
Francisco Salas
Francisco Salas:
Way to go Serena!
Serena has some of the best forehand angles. Not to mention an excellent slice serve on the deuce
Larontez Moore
Larontez Moore:
It's good to see Serena bounce back after that tough loss at Wimbledon. I think Serena is chasing that last hooray against the best of WTA before she retires. She knew getting her butt whipped by No. 90 ranked Harmony Tan in the first round of Wimbledon was not it. If anyone deserves that last stand it's Serena. I hope she can make it far in this tournament.

She still got it! Her backhand return needs to improve though. She used to destroy her opponents with it.
Pascal Calixte
Pascal Calixte:
To play the way she did even when seeing how over it she is shows her true grit
Great Champ, congrats for the fighting spirit. I do not believe however that she can win a slam anymore. Wimbledon would be her best chance as she still has her powerful and precise service. On other surfaces you have to run much more…

Diaz tried her best to beat a legend but Serena is determined to make it to Round 2. At age 40 with heavy breathing, she refuse to lose. Great match and nice try for the underdog.

Serena was moving ok. Lot of balls up the middle tho and paced slower than even Wimbledon. I think she just needs to get her rhythm back
