U.S. Open 2018: Serena Williams praises Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid

More trophies and children are hopefully in Serena Williams future, said tennis's most famous working mother on Sunday, adding that she has a new appreciation about how hard it is to raise both, Reuters reports.

Back in the '80s, the Major League Baseball was caught colluding against ball players after the union showed team owners acted together to keep player salaries down.

Serena Williams survived a scare from giant-killer Kaia Kanepi to claim a rollercoaster 6-0 4-6 6-3 win on Sunday and move into the U.S. Open quarter-finals, a step closer to a record- equaling 24th career Grand Slam title.

S erena Williams of the US hits a return to Kaia Kanepi of Estonia during the seventh day of the US Open.

Against Kanepi, she clinched her 93rd US Open victory, the most among all active players, and second-most in the Open Era behind Chris Evert (101-12) and ahead of Martina Navratilova (89-17). Kanepi is known for sowing chaos for seeds in Slams.

6 seed Sam Stosur in the first round at Wimbledon in 2010, No. 9 seed Caroline Wozniacki in the third round at Roland-Garros in 2012, and No. 7 seed Jelena Jankovic in the first round at Wimbledon in 2014, to name a few. While out with an injury, Kanepi took a course to learn how to drive on the frozen-over roads.

"I don't really feel pressure, because I'm on this journey of getting back to where I was", she said. And I like the weather: "hot and humid". "Thank you so much Serena!"

She is the queen of Estonian "firsts." .

After a Williams double fault gave Kanepi a break for a 5-2 Williams answered by winning the next two games.

The Estonian, who became past year the first qualifier to move to the quarterfinals since Barbara Gerken did so in 1981, played an incredibly brilliant tennis in the second set.

"Winning a big game and a very important game and a really tight game, I think it was just a relief", said Williams, who took control with a break in the next game and maintained that advantage until she fired a forehand victor on her first match point.

That was all she needed as 18 aces and 47 total winners proved plenty to put her through.

Williams booked a quarter-final date with Karolina Pliskova, the eighth-seeded Czech who beat Australian Ashleigh Barty 6-4, 6-4. Halep was not her first big upset in the majors.

Any tension inside a packed Arthur Ashe Stadium, however, was quickly eased as a ruthless Williams stormed through the opening set in 18 minutes for the loss of a measly six points. "Quarter-finals of a Grand Slam is always really tough".
