Serena could face Venus before US Open quarters

Serena Williams

In June, the Forbes rankings of the world's top 100 highest earning athletes did not feature a woman after Williams dropped out of the chart.

Forbes released the list of top ten world's highest-paid female athletes of 2018 and PV Sindhu bagged the 7th place and was the first Indian non-tennis athlete to make it the top ten list.

This marks the third consecutive year the younger Williams sister has clinched the number one spot, despite only earning $62,000 in prize money in the past year due to taking a break from competition while pregnant.

Still, the 23-time Grand Slam champion collected twice as many off-court coins than any other female athlete.

The handset which was launched in NY earlier this month will be priced Rs 67,900 onwards, and shipping will begin from August 24. The prominent features are an artificial intelligence constituent to the camera, a large battery and a reinforced S Pen stylus.

Indian badminton player P.V. Sindhu - with $8.5 million - and retired race vehicle driver Danica Patrick, who earned $7.5 million are the only non-tennis players to enter the top-10, placing seventh and ninth respectively. The amount is, however, down by 4% from last year and by 28% from five years ago.

If the sisters do play each other, the victor might face world number one Simona Halep in the fourth round.

Serena, a 23-time grand slam victor, missed the tournament 12 months ago due to the birth of her daughter, and is seeded 17th for the 2018 edition.

Williams, 36, has had a roller coaster return to tennis since the birth of her daughter.

Williams, seeking to tie Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam titles, comes into the Open after a frosty Open-tuneup season.

Rafael Nadal is the No. 1 seed in men's singles.

Defending women's champion Sloane Stephens will play Russia's Evgeniya Rodina in the opening round and could face former world number one Victoria Azarenka of Belarus in the third, Belgian 15th seed Elise Mertens in the fourth and seventh-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina in the quarter-finals.
