Serena back to US Open final after easy victory

20 years after her first title Serena Williams is once again chasing history at the US Open

Svitolina, who broke the psychological barrier of reaching a Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon in July, became the first Ukrainian to make the last four of the US Open with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Britain's Johanna Konta.

An uncanny global women's tennis guru, Mair called Naomi Osaka winning the 2018 U.S. Open at 32-1, part of his mind-boggling two-year streak.

Serena Williams acknowledges the Flushing Meadows crowd after cruising into her 10th US Open final.

Williams, who last won the US Open in 2014, will know this is a golden opportunity to enter the record books before going in search of Grand Slam title number 25 in 2020.

The 24-year-old Ukrainian will also look to become one of the few players who have defeated the Williams sisters in the same tournament on the WTA Tour. Serving at 3-1, Serena repelled three more break chances and sailed through games seven and nine to close the opener with a service victor after 41 minutes.

"I'm really happy, but the tournament's not done yet.

I had to come out here and play really well", said Williams, suffering no ill effects from the ankle she rolled in her previous match.

"I had some tough matches round of 16, quarter-finals before I started to win them".

Only now, after bringing her own daughter Alexis Olympia into the world two years ago, does Williams have a full perspective of the sacrifices her father and lifelong coach Richard made for her.

"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.

Playing in the men's doubles semifinals are Marcel Granollers with Haracio Zeballos against Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies, as well as Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah against Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski.

This is a record she has maintained irrespective of how the season has turned out for her. Case in point, she started the year on a boring note owing to injuries.

In the semi-finals, Williams will compete against Elina Svitolina of Ukraine on September 6. And she gave me a lot of pressure.

Williams, a six-time U.S. Open champ, is looking to build off her dominant 44-minute quarterfinal win as she continues to pursue her 24th career major title. Andreescu went down early but roared back winning 12 of the last 17 games, paced by her serve and big groundstrokes.

But then, it will be a hard one for her. "For me this perspective changed and I'm enjoying so much the tennis now". The women on the schedule Wednesday: No. 13 Belinda Bencic vs. Donna Vekic, and Bianca Andreescu vs.
