Serena Williams not affected by busy schedule

Serena Williams says that she is used to her current heavy diary at the US Open.

World number one Serena Williams is adamant that her busy schedule is not affecting her form after cruising into the third round of the US Open.

The American, who has dropped just four games in four sets so far in the tournament, breezed past Galina Voskoboeva 6-3 6-0 at Flushing Meadows on Thursday.

Despite being without a day off so far at the Grand Slam, Williams believes that she is used to the demands of her hectic diary.

"I usually play every day," she said when asked if the busy schedule bothered her.

"In regular tournaments I don't have a day off. Only in the grand slams I get the luxury of having a day off. I guess I didn't get that, [but] I'm definitely used to it."

Williams will meet Yaroslava Shvedova in next round on Friday.
