Phenomenal Serena Williams has rolled into the finals of US Open, 20 years after she won her first title at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in a demonstration of skills, strength and ruthless dominance against Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-3, 6-1.
Before this, Svitolina had yet to drop a set on her way to the semi-final.
It was Serena`s 101st win at the US Open, equalling Martina Navatilova`s record.
And with that, she denied Svitolina in her bid to become the second Ukrainian to play in a Grand Slam singles final after Andrei Medvedev, who lost in five sets to Andre Agassi at the 1999 French Open.
On Saturday, the 37-year American will continue her quest for Tennis immortality as she chases a record 24 Grand Slam title – to equal Margaret Court’s all-time record.
She will face either Belinda Bencic or Bianca Andreescu in her bid for a seventh US Open triumph.
Serena, who made her US Open debut in 1998, matched Chris Evert for the most wins in tournament history after advancing to a 33rd major final.
“It’s impressive. To be in any club with Chrissie is awesome,” Williams said.
Serena is looking for her first Slam title since the 2017 Australian Open and hasn’t won the US Open since 2014.
