The 26-year-old opponent, who was born only a few weeks before Williams competed in her first Grand Slam final at the US Open in 1997, was no match for the 43-year-old tennis legend.
Williams, whose world ranking has dropped to 410th, was never in the match against Minnen, who controlled every aspect of the contest to win easily.
Carlos Alcaraz will play South African Lloyd Harris in the second round of the US Open.
Williams has recently exhibited a tendency to forego playing after the US Open at the end of each season.
The American veteran, however, said that she would change her intentions following a season that was derailed by ailments, particularly a knee injury sustained at Wimbledon, where she also lost in the first round.
Daniel Craig, who plays “James Bond,” was sighted at Wimbledon.
Since my year didn’t turn out the way I expected it to, in any manner, shape, or form, Williams remarked, “I may think twice about that this year.”
“I was really picking up speed leading up to Wimbledon. For the summer, that fall really kind of knocked me for a loop.
Venus Williams heaped Minnen with admiration.
Williams, meanwhile, steadfastly declined to provide any hints as to when she could decide to retire like her younger sister Serena.
Brad Pitt, a Hollywood icon, was sighted at Wimbledon.
When asked what would determine her next step in her career, she responded, “I wouldn’t tell you so I don’t know why you’re asking.”
Minnen, however, received high acclaim from Williams, who claimed that she possessed the talent necessary to excel in the women’s game.
There was no shot she couldn’t make, according to Williams.
“She just struck a winner or a dropshot, even when I hit absolutely beautiful shots.
“Honestly, it was absolutely fantastic. If she can play like that, you may assume that she could rank among the top 10, take the top spot, or even win a Grand Slam.
