The director of the US Open tennis tournament, Stacey Allaster (in photo), says American star Serena Williams has been "an extraordinary gift to tennis for the past 25 years."
We'll hear Allaster's comments on Monday's show. Serena plays her opening match Monday evening against Montenegro's Danka Kovinic. This is expected to be the final US Open for the 40-year-old Williams, who is retiring.
Also on the program, George McNeilly has a report on Irish golf star Rory McIlroy rallying to win the TOUR Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
