Serena Williams' last dance

Make sure you're by a TV Monday night for Serena Williams' first-round match at the U.S. Open. It could be the last time we ever get to see the GOAT in action.

Williams, 40, said earlier this month that she plans to "evolve away from tennis" after the U.S. Open. Thus, each match could be her last.

Up first?  World No. 80 Danka Kovinić of Montenegro (7pm ET, ESPN).

"When Serena was playing in the past, the atmosphere already was electric, so I can't imagine what it'll be out there now," said 17th seed Caroline Garcia.

Williams' dominance has been unmatched since winning her first of an Open Era-record 23 Grand Slam titles at this very tournament 23 years ago, when she was just 17.

She first reached No. 1 3yrs later in July'02 & most recently held that spot in May'17, longest time ever between No. 1 rankings. She twice achieved "Serena Slam," holding all 4 major titles at once.

Win or lose at any pt during tournament her legacy is already set in stone. Now is time to simply soak in the final moments of the greatest athletic careers we'll ever have the pleasure of witnessing.
