Serena Williams will once again be counted on to wave the Stars and Stripes at the U.S. Open as she takes center stage at New York's Flushing Meadows, with the next generation of American tennis hopefuls waiting in the wings.Williams has reached the U.S. Open winner's circle five times, including the last two years, and is favored to add a sixth to her collection when the gates swing open Monday at Flushing Meadows.If there is one cloud hanging over Williams' U.S. Open buildup it has been her less than stellar play in the three grand slams where she has failed to reach the quarterfinals.A victory at Flushing Meadows would move Williams level with Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the all-time list with 18 titles, behind only Australian Margaret Court (24) and Steffi Graf (22).
