The winner managed no less than six breaks in 17 occasions while suffering the same fate only three times, including during her first two games of the service game. She left few opportunities to break her opponent – ​​179th in the world – afterwards, notably slamming 11 aces.

Marino, currently No. 109 in the world, cracked the top 10 earlier this month for the first time since 2012. His only career duel against Williams dates back even further. It was at the US Open in 2010 and the American won in straight sets.

Later this summer, the two women will also be in the National Bank Open since they obtained passes in Toronto.
