Serena Williams advances to US Open final

Former World Number 1, Serena Williams will be looking to set another chance to equal the all-time Grand Slam record after defeating Elina Svitolina to reach the US Open final clash.

The 37-year-old American defeated the Ukrainian fifth seed 6-3 6-1 on the Arthur Ashe Stadium last night to reach her fourth major final since welcoming her first child in September 2017.

The six-time champion will now face Canadian 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu in Saturday’s final in New York.

“There’s so many different emotions in finals,” Williams said softly on Thursday night. “It just brings out so many highs and lows, nerves and expectations — it’s a lot.”

“Obviously there’s a lot of things that I’ve learned in the past,” Williams said, “but I just have to go out there and, above all, most of all, just stay relaxed.”

Serena Willimas will now seek to match Australian Margaret Court’s tally of 24 Grand Slams, but this will only happen if she defeats Bianca Andreescu on Saturday.

On the final clash with Serena, Andreescu said, “It’s just surreal. I really don’t know what to say. It’s a dream come true playing against Serena in the finals of the U.S. Open. I don’t know what to say. It’s crazy. It’s crazy.”
