What time is Serena Williams on tonight? How to watch US Open match against Ajla Tomljanovic

Serena Williams will hope to put off her retirement for one more match as she takes on Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round of the US Open tonight.

The 40-year-old produced one of her best performances in years to stun the world No 2 Anett Kontaveit in a sensational performance on Arthur Ashe.

The victory sparked hopes of a deep tournament run on what is expected to be the 23-time grand slam champion’s final tournament before confirming her retirement from the sport.

Tomljanovic, the world No 46, reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals earlier this year and has experience of playing against the crowd after ending Emma Raducanu’s Wimbledon run the year before.

Here’s everything you need to know.
