Williams 6-1 6-1 Sharapova (*denotes next to serve)

A double fault is not a good way for Sharapova to start this game. She’s trying – and failing – stay in the match as the American takes a 0-30 lead. The Russian makes it 15-30 and goes for a huge backhand that falls just in – according to review. Still 15-30.

Williams just keeps getting it back, forcing Sharapova to hit wide. The American has two match points. And she only needs one, the Russian hitting a backhand too long once again.

Williams has swept Sharapova away in this match.

Williams is under pressure on the serve – but responds with an ace. At 30-30, Williams overhits a backhand and Sharapova has a chance to break for the first time. Oh dear. Sharapova goes for a winner with the backhand, but goes well wide. Deuce.

But another superb return from Sharapova hands the Russian another chance to break. But Williams is having none of it, making it deuce with another strong serve. The Russian wins a review on a serve and gets a chance to break. Can she take it? No. Williams hits to her backhand and Sharapova can only find the net. Again she hits a return into the net, and Williams has the chance to hold. Another big serve wraps up the game.

Ooph so close. Williams is getting the rub of the green here. A strong forehand lands on the line before she fires down an ace – Sharapova loses the appeal.

At 30-0, Sharapova goes for a big forehand – but sees it go a little long. And Williams sees a dink hit the top of the net – and land the other side. Another bit of luck – not that she needs it – wraps up an easy hold. The American takes the first set comfortably. How will Sharapova respond?

Williams and Ramos won’t meet again

One thing is for sure, there will be no court reunion between Williams and umpire Ramos at the US Open this year.

US Open officials said on Friday that Serena Williams had not made a formal request for chair umpire Carlos Ramos to be kept away from her matches over the coming ­fortnight. Yet they have still ­decided to separate the two for the benefit of the tournament, writes Simon Briggs.

Last year’s final turned into what a recent ESPN documentary ­described as “the ugliest finish in grand-slam history” after Ramos ­issued Williams with three code violations, prompting the partisan New York crowd to boo the ­victorious Naomi Osaka when she stepped up to the presentation dais.
