With a fifth US Open title in her sights, Serena Williams opened the 2013 tournament with a dominant victory over Francesca Schiavone on Monday. In just an hour, Williams disposed of Schiavone 6-0, 6-1 to advance to the second round.
For the US Open, Serena is wearing a new PE colorway of her Lunarlon cushioned Nike Mirabella tennis shoe. The model retains most of the language of her preferred Air Max Mirabella 3 shoe, but comes equipped with what appears to be a Lunar midsole for comfort on the hard surface.
Serena will play Russia's Galina Voskoboeva in the second round tomorrow. Take a closer look at her US Open shoes below.
