Six-time champion Serena Williams storms into the US Open finals
sweeping aside Anastasija Sevastova where she will face Japanese power player
Naomi Osaka. Williams has a golden chance in front of her to equal to Margaret
Court’s all-time record of grand slam titles by beating Osaka. With six titles
in New York, she needs just one more to surpass Chris Evert, an 18-time grand
slam champion. This is Serena’s 31st Grand Slam final and the
ninth US Open Final.

She was out of the game for a year after announcing her
pregnancy and later undergoing surgery for life-threatening blood clots post
delivery. Now she is back in action and too in full swing looking close to her
very best. Serena called her return to the game ‘incredible’ and felt
that this is just the beginning. She said, “I just felt like there is a lot of
growth still needed in my game and that’s the most exciting part. Even though I
am not a spring chicken, I still have a very bright future.”

Williams broke her tradition of not the one to approach the net
in the semi-finals, and it paid off well with a trip to the US Open finals. The
American charged to the net with purpose throughout the match on 28 occasions
and winning 24 of those points and swept off Latvian 19th seed
Anastasija Sevastova. “I have been working on my volleys” replied Williams on
her aggressive game plan. With this emphatic win on the semi-finals, chances
soar high for this former world champion to yet again conquer another Grand Slam
to her name.
