Serena Williams – very possibly playing the final event of her legendary career – will headline opening night at the US Open on ESPN on Monday, Aug. 29, at 7 p.m. ET, playing Danka Kovinic, a 27-year-old from Montenegro. For the first time, “Cross-Court Coverage” will be employed the first two nights as ESPN shows the action from Arthur Ashe Stadium while ESPN2 focuses on Louis Armstrong Stadium. The second match on Ashe will see Nick Kyrgios facing fellow Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis. The doubleheader on ESPN2 will see No. 4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Daniel Elahi Galan, followed by last year’s US Open women’s finalist, 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez of Canada squaring off against Oceane Dodin of France.
