Six-time US Open champ Williams to face her main rival in first round

Serena Williams will face her main rival Maria Sharapova in the first round of the US Open. If Williams wins the championship, this will be her 24th Grand Slam singles title.

The rivalry between the athletes started over a decade and a half ago.

The most recent clash of the two was at the 2016 Australian Open. Serena won in straight sets: 6-4, 6-1.

Sharapova, however, won two of their earlier matches, the 2004 Wimbledon final and the WTA Tour Finals.
