Serena Williams reaches US Open final by outclassing Elina Svitolina

Serena Williams reaches US Open final by outclassing Elina Svitolina

Serena Williams will look to avenge a 2016 defeat at the Rio Olympic Games in Thursday's US Open semi-final against Elina Svitolina as the American targets a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title.

Elina Svitolina became the first Ukrainian woman to reach the US Open semi-finals on Tuesday with a 6-4, 6-4 win over British 16th seed Johanna Konta.

The U.S. Open is well underway going into the eleventh day of the tournament, seeing pivotal moments from Serena Williams' 100th Open win to Naomi Osaka's heartwarming interaction with 15-year-old Coco Gauff. Williams captured her last Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant and hasn't won the US Open since 2014. This is the portion of the tournament that is supposed to be where winning a Grand Slam title gets hard, where the remaining players are among the very best opposition around.

"Through the tough times it helped me to see a little different way the tennis when you can't always play", Bencic said. You can also pick how many sets the match lasts, whether Williams covers a 4.5-game spread and whether the match goes over or under 20.5 games.

"[Whoever] reaches the semi-final is playing well", she said. Have a cable subscription but want to watch on the go?

The caller assumed Hart had been the driver, despite officials saying his friend Jared Black, 28, was behind the wheel. In addition to Hart and Black, Black's fiancee, Rebecca Broxterman, was in the vehicle , which was crushed.


There is no doubt whoever Williams faces in the final she will be an overwhelming favourite, even if Andreescu did beat her in the final of the Rogers Cup last month after the American retired in the first set with a back injury.

"I think hitting with him, it has definitely helped me to improve my reaction and my footwork, move really quickly", Svitolina said of the impact Monfils has had. Svitolina won several points that yielded an ovation from her team and the crowd alike. She doesn't make a lot of mistakes.

Mair knows Williams is coming off a dominant performance in which she did not allow Qiang to hit a single victor. Dimitrov will play No. 5 Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals tomorrow (Friday). Should she win the U.S. Open, she would become Canada's first ever Grand Slam singles champion. The match will start at 7:00 pm local time (12:00 am BST) and here, you will find the latest Serena Williams v Elina Svitolina live streaming options with the preview and tips.

But then, it will be a hard one for her. The women on the schedule Wednesday: No. 13 Belinda Bencic vs. Donna Vekic, and Bianca Andreescu vs.

"It feels good. It feels like, okay, this is what I've been training for", Williams said. "For me this perspective changed and I'm enjoying so much the tennis now".
