Day 4: Serena makes short work of Krajicek

By Jane McManus

In just four hours, 40 minutes, all three of the matches slated for Arthur Ashe Stadium, the biggest court at the U.S. Open, were complete. No. 28 Serena Williams needed just 49 minutes to beat Michaella Krajicek, 6-0, 6-1.

With customers buying tickets specifically to get a full day of tennis at Ashe, the USTA could opt to move another match to Ashe and have it completed in time for the night session, which starts at 7 p.m.
