Iga Swiatek reaches first US Open final, will face fifth seed Ons Jabeur in Sunday’s final
The last time Serena Williams won a Grand Slam title was in 2006, the same year that she was named the U.S. Open’s Most Outstanding Player.
Williams finished off that season in style by winning the U.S. Open in a five-player playoff.
She later set up a repeat this year by beating Naomi Osaka in the final and becoming the first American to win the prestigious event in almost 24 years.
Williams reached the final in 2017 in Cincinnati by beating Jelena Ostapenko, but lost in a five-set thriller to Naomi Osaka. That year, she also won the WTA Finals.
“I love this sport and we are all really excited about the way things are going for Serena, so I’m so happy for her and really excited for us,” U.S. Open runner-up and No. 10 seed Naomi Osaka said after her victory.
It’s a matchup that has already been discussed for weeks as the top seed and No. 2 seed battle for the chance to become the third American to win the women’s Grand Slam in the same tournament.
