Williams crushes Sevastova to reach US Open final

  • Sevastova won the opening two games but was then quickly blown away by her opponent

For all of six minutes.

But Pliskova's game is ideally suited to grass, proof of which are her titles from Nottingham in 2016 and Eastbourne in 2017.

The No. 20 seed will play six-time U.S. Open champion Serena Williams for the title Saturday. I have won a few doubles championships, so I know how to volley.

A victory for the 36-year-old would bring her overall record up to 24 Grand Slam singles titles, tying a feat first achieved by Margaret Court.

Osaka already has experience with that kind of match thanks to her semifinal victory over Madison Keys, where she saved all 13 break points she faced - which led to Keys proclaiming in her post-match press conference that "she can definitely give Serena a run for her money". I'm going to see what he says tomorrow.' Sascha also said Naomi plays her best matches in the biggest moments.

Osaka was born in Japan but left when she was three years old and raised in the United States. "Like, what do you mean?"

The 2018 US Open final, Williams' second consecutive grand slam final, will take place on Saturday.

Tennis fans will recall Williams wore the tutu after the French Open banned her from wearing her black catsuit at future tournaments. She had four operations following the birth of her daughter, Olympia, during the Open because of complications related to blood clots.

She will turn 37 on September 26, unsure when she'll fully get back to the player she was before her health scares.

Either way, this will be Williams' 31st grand slam final all up.

"It is really incredible".

And Williams' husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, wants the tennis legend to know how proud of her he is.

And there were plenty of those.

"It still feels a little bit, like, surreal".

Indeed, she gets Williams, who has lost only one set in the entire tournament (H/T to Kaia Kanepi). "I don't dream to lose", she said. She's more focused on achieving her goal and mission.

The key for Williams, really, was something of a new wrinkle: moving forward as much as possible. And in last year's U.S. Open, she defeated defending champion Angelique Kerber in the first round. "It will be a really good match. I just usually come in to shake hands, but tonight I thought I had to come in to have a chance".

Osaka is at the beginning of what could be a marvelous career.

Second, the history: Williams, who will turn 37 later this month, returns to her first U.S. Open final since 2014.

The 20-year-old, who grew up in NY and Florida, has Flushing Meadows buzzing about her lethal skills and disarming charm.

"Mom, I did it". "I'm just going to keep trying", she said. But she discounts the Miami loss as being too early in her comeback from motherhood and the life-threatening pulmonary embolism that required four surgeries.
