Canadian 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu will face six-time champion Serena Williams in the Women’s US Open final at Flushing Meadows in New York on Saturday.
Andreescu reached her first Grand Slam final by defeating Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 in the semifinals, winning the last five games of the match to do so.
She is playing in the US Open main draw for the first time and competing in only her fourth Grand Slam tournament.
Confidence certainly shouldn’t be an issue for the teenager from Ontario, as she has won her past 22 completed matches, either side of a shoulder injury. She also recently won the Rogers Cup in Toronto, where she beat Serena Williams in the final after the veteran American retired through injury when 3-1 adrift in the opening set.
The 37 year-old Williams is aiming for her first Grand Slam title since giving birth in September 2017. She has lost two Wimbledon and one US Open final since then, but is in ominous form coming into this match, having overpowered the Ukrainian fifth seed, Elina Svitolina, in the last four to win 6-3 6-1.
