2015 U.S. OPEN TENNIS TOURNAMENT
August 31, 2015  | By David Bianculli

ESPN, 12:00 p.m. ET

 
There are other stories, other dramas, and other athletes competing in this year’s U.S. Open – but no tennis player will be under more scrutiny, and pressure, than returning champion Serena Williams (pictured at least year’s win). Already, her current winning streak has the 33-year-old displaying trophies from the previous four major tennis tournaments – and at Flushing Meadows, beginning today, she’s going for a fifth, which would give her a calendar Gram Slam. The last player to do that? Steffi Graf, back in 1988. ESPN’s coverage begins today at noon ET, and Williams is scheduled to begin her quest after 7 p.m. ET. Evening coverage also is provided by ESPN2.
