Follow the updates live on U.S. Open website, as well as streaming on ESPN3 and WatchESPN.

American world number one Serena Williams, who easily put away Ekaterina Makarova in her round 1 game on Tuesday, returns to action on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court on Thursday and despite taking just a little over an hour to beat her Russian first round opponent, the favourite admits that she can still improve.

“I can improve a lot,” said Williams. “I can get a lot better.

“I feel like there’s much, much more I can do. That’s the only thing I can do is do that.”

Williams will face fellow countrywoman Vania King in the evening session and the top-seed, as expected, starts as the firm favourite among the bookies to advance.

The six-time US Open champion is seeking a record-setting 23rd grand slam title.

Her sister and sixth seed Venus, in the meantime, will play Germany’s Julia Goerges in her round 2 match, while No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland meets Naomi Broady of Great Britain, fifth seed Simona Halep of Romania takes on Czech Republic’s Lucie Safarova and the 11th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain faces Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic.

Meanwhile, in men’s singles action on Thursday, No. 2 Andy Murray continues his hunt for another grand slam and major title this year when the Wimbledon and Olympic champion takes on Marcel Granollers of Spain in his US Open round 2 match.

In other men’s singles round 2 action, two-time grand slam winner and the third-seeded Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland faces Italy’s Alessandro Giannessi, while sixth seed Kei Nishikori of Japan will meet Russia’s Karen Khachanov.
