Kontaveit is something of an enigma. The 26-year-old Estonian rocketed up the rankings by winning four titles last year, but she has never shone at a Grand Slam, reaching the quarter-finals just once, in Melbourne two years ago. Her 2022 record is a dreary 25-13, though she still managed to reach three finals, one of which she finished in glory.
Tonight he will not only face Serena, but the entire Arthur Ashe Stadium, although it seems that he is taking it all in stride, perhaps because he knows he has what it takes to crash the party.
The 40-year-old overcame initial nerves to beat World No.83 Danka Kovinic 6-3, 6-3 on Monday, but was allowed to plant her feet and make her power count. Kontaveit is sure to force Serena to move around the court, and from what we’ve seen this year, that won’t be easy for the six-time US Open champion.
