Today’s Google logo marks the first day of the 37th US Open tournament. Taking place at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York, the tennis tournament starts today and will run through September 13.
The animated Doodle returns a search for “US tennis Open results” and is posted on a limited number of Google’s home pages outside the US.
“We thought we’d imagine what our letters would look like playing tennis,” says Google’s Doodle blog. “Fortunately, Serena Williams can’t hit a through-body lob like today’s ‘O,’ but she could be the first woman to win a Grand Slam since Poison had a number-one single.”
Today, Serena Williams enters the tournament having won this year’s Australia Open, French Open and Wimbledon. Steffi Graf was the last player to achieve the honor, winning a Grand Slam in 1988.
