Venus’s preparation will be the deciding factor in her second round match against Sabine Lisicki.

Coming into the US Open, Sabine Lisicki, who’s never been ranked higher than No. 18 in the world, is one of the dark horses to win the women’s singles crown. Fresh off her second title of the season this past weekend at the inaugural Texas Tennis Open in Dallas, the No. 22 seed continued her recent run of form Tuesday on the new Court 17, defeating Alona Bondarenko, 6-3, 6-3.  She’ll square off against two-time US Open champion Venus Williams in a highly anticipated second-round clash. They’ve split their two previous meetings, with Williams winning their most recent encounter in Dubai last year. “The Williams sisters always play well at the Grand Slams, and you can never underestimate them,” Lisicki stated. “It’s for sure going to be a tough match. A very good challenge. But if you want to succeed, you have to beat the best.”
