Serena Williams in the Semi Final

Serena Williams, born 26th September, 1981, is an American professional tennis player who was formerly ranked no. 1 in the World. The Women’s Tennis Association ranked her no.1 in the world in singles on eight different occasions between 2002 and 2017. She reached the no. 1 ranking for the first time on 8th July, 2002. On her sixth occasion, she held the ranking for 186 successive weeks, tying the record set by Steffi Graf. In total, she has been no. 1 for 319 weeks, which ranks her third in the Open Era among female players behind Graf and Navratilova.

Serena Williams sailed into a 10th US Open final as she sweeped aside 5th seed Elina Svitolina with a score of 6-3, 6-1 to claim a record-equaling 101st win at Flushing Meadows. Serena Williams is seeking a 24th Grand Slam singles title to match the all-time record of Margaret Court’s and will face Bianca Andreescu, who gave beating to Belinda Bencic in the other semi-final of US Open, on Saturday in her bid for a record seventh US Open triumph. The 37-year-old American woman, who made her US Open debut in 1998, drew level with Chris Evert for the most wins in tournament history after advancing to a 33rd major final.

About Opponent Of Serena

When Serena Williams won her first US Open title (i.e. in 1999), Bi Bianca Andreescu wasn’t even born. Now, the 19-year old teenager will clash against Serena Williams in the final of the US Open in a bid to win her first Grand Slam title and stop Serena from equaling all-time record of Margaret Court of 24 singles Grand Slam titles. She is the first Canadian woman to reach the US Open final which is a big pride for Canada. Bianca is also the second teenage Grand Slam finalist in 2019.
