Venus Williams US Open Interview - Day 1 Monday August 28th 2017

V. WILLIAMS/V. Kuzmova 6-3, 3-6, 6-2
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. You were playing a player today who had never played a WTA match. Did you know that?

VENUS WILLIAMS: I had no idea what she looked like, who she was, anything. But she played amazing. She played well, served well, competed well. Definitely a match I had to earn.

Q. You dropped the second set. Did you know your experience would see you through?

VENUS WILLIAMS: I definitely wasn't expecting or planning on dropping sets today. But things happen. That's why we play the match, because you have to win the match.
So it's just all about regrouping. It's the first round. You figure out, you know, what's going on.

Williams is in her 19th U.S. Open; she reached the final in her 1997 debut, about eight months before Kuzmova was born.
