NEW YORK -- The image of Beyonce and Jay-Z courtside on the giant US Open video screens drew the expected cheers from the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd Thursday night. Nike Jerseys .From the competitors on court, there were two reactions.I looked up and was like, Oh s---, Beyonce is watching, 87th-ranked Vania King said.And from Serena Williams, who was the reason the superstar couple was there?Usually when people are there, I try to play better, especially if theyre famous and theyre doing so great at their job, she said. Its like I want to show them that Im good at my job, too -- minus today.As hard as it might be to read Williams changing moods on a tennis court, it is not difficult to distinguish between celebratory and chagrined.And despite her 6-3, 6-3 second-round victory over King, Williams was definitely not thrilled.I just think it should have been a different scoreline for me, Williams said. I feel like I made a lot of errors.A qualifier into the main draw, King fondly remembers Arthur Ashe Court as the place where she sang America the Beautiful before one of Andre Agassis final matches when she was a 17-year-old in 2006. That same year, she came through qualifying and reached the second round.It was a considerably different memory than the only other time she played Williams, taking only one game off the world No. 1 in the second round of the 2014 US Open.I was disappointed I lost [Thursday], but I was happy at least that I got to show a little bit of my game, King said. I felt like last time I played her, I got blown off the court and I was very, very nervous and wasnt able to impose any of my game because I was just overwhelmed by the situation.This time she was overwhelmed only by Williams serve.I felt like if I could get my racket on it, I was doing well, King said.Williams followed a 6-3, 6-3 first-round win over Ekaterina Makarova, rich with carefully placed serves and blazing groundstrokes, with a match Thursday night in which she hit 13 aces and won 83 percent of her first serves while registering a stunning 38-4 advantage in winners.Though Williams reported no residual soreness in the right shoulder that has severely limited her match play this year, averaging 107 mph on her first serves, she had 28 unforced errors to Kings 11.[The shoulder] is stable, Williams said. Ive just got to keep it like that. Its two matches in, and usually you want to be able to play seven matches. Its not even close to the halfway point. I definitely want to keep it as good as it can be.But the owner of the best serve in tennis knows whats most important to her if she is to surpass Steffi Graf for her 23rd career Grand Slam title.[The serve] was the best part of my game today, Williams said. So seeing thats what I did the least [well] coming into this tournament, its a really good sign [that I was] able to serve well and [Ill] hopefully gain momentum with that.With the win, Williams hit still another milestone on her list, tying Martina Navratilova for the most Grand Slam match victories in the Open era at 306.Sometimes I dont even know that Im hitting these milestones, Williams said. But some of them, Im really proud of. Like this ones kind of cool, to win 306. Thats really a cool milestone.Sister Venus Williams, who played earlier in the day on the covered Ashe Stadium court, defeating Julia Goerges 6-2, 6-3, made history of her own this week with a record 72nd Grand Slam main draw appearance.At 36, Venus goals are not unlike her sisters.Im grateful that I can still play the game I want to play right now, Venus said. As an athlete, as a tennis player, thats what you want. ... If you get to the point where you cant do that, thats where you need to start to think, OK, I need to move on.Im not at that point yet, and hopefully Ill be able to play the game I want to play right until the last day that Im done.For Serena, playing the game she wants generally accompanies winning tournaments. Even her opponents seem to expect nothing less.My coach asks me before each tournament, Who do you think is going to win the tournament? And Im like, Well, Im still in the tournament, King said with a laugh. But I always say Serena. I mean, who else can you say? And youre always surprised if she loses.No matter what shape shes in, what condition, shes the best player in the world. ... If my coach asked me [now], I would say Serena. Ive never not picked her.
