Game, set, match to Kelly Clarkson.

The “American Idol” alum performed a special concert to commemorate the opening night of the 50th U.S. Open on Monday, and to say that she nailed it is an understatement.

Three-time Grammy winner Clarkson belted out a medley of her old and new hits in the six-song set before Serena Williams took over the court to play against Magda Linette in the first night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The “Since U Been Gone” singer won over the crowd at Flushing Meadows with the swiftness that Grand Slam champion Williams usually dominates her opponents, prompting a flood of applause on social media — and multiple calls for her to be crowned the next Super Bowl halftime performer.

“Why haven’t we had a Kelly Clarkson Super Bowl halftime show yet,” one Twitter user marveled.

“I love opening for ” line of day one by Kelly Clarkson,” former tennis pro Pam Shriver said.

“In case your wondering, brought the house down with ‘Since U Been Gone’ and played all her hits,” said another fan.

The U.S. Open airs live on ESPN and ESPN2. The opening night 50th Anniversary festivities were co-hosted by Billie Jean King and Mike Greenberg, co-host of ESPN’s weekday morning show “Get Up.”
