Flushing, NY – With a convincing 6-3, 6-1 victory over No.5 seed Elina Svitolina, Serena Williams advanced to the final of the 2019 U.S. Open Championship final. This will be Williams fourth try to tie Margaret Court’s 24-Grand Slams record.
Although Williams owns the Open-era record for total Grand Slams, a win will tie her with Court for the all-time record.
In addition to earning her 10th appearance in a US Open singles final, this will be her 33rd Grand Slam final overall. If she wins the title on Saturday, she will break two significant all-time records that she currently shares with Evert.
In addition to winning her 102nd US Open match if she defeats Bianca Andreescu in the final, it would also be Williams’ seventh US Open women’s singles crown. She and Evert share the mark with six.
