Canada's Bianca Andreescu advances to US Open final, will face Serena Williams

Serena Williams lost the first set to Bianca Andreescu

It will be Williams' fourth attempt to tie Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles following her defeats at Wimbledonthe last two years and her rancorous U.S. Open loss to Naomi Osaka last year.

While Andreescu was a virtual unknown before this year having never made it past the second-round of a Grand Slam tournament before, Saturday's breakthrough win did not register as a shock in the tennis world.

There was no let up from Andreescu and she broke in front once more in the second courtesy of yet another double-fault, as Williams again bowed under scrutiny.

That was followed by routine wins over Karolina Muchova, Petra Martica and Cat McNally before blasting her way into the last four with a jaw dropping 6-1 6-0 rout of China's Wang Qiang to register her 100th U.S. Open victory. "That's the only solace that I can take right now". However, it wouldn't be a total upset if the player doesn't win.

It is a year since the great American left Arthur Ashe Stadium in tears, a broken champion who could do little but surrender to her own frailties and the rock-solid tennis of Naomi Osaka, a teenager who would rise further then fall in the nearly inevitable narrative of their sport.

"She's a warrior, and she's a street fighter", Bruneau said before the match.

A poisonous atmosphere developed on Ashe as the NY crowd turned on Ramos with deafening boos. She missed a long stretch of tournament play because of a rotator cuff tear in her shoulder but has dominated draws when healthy.

Because, just as Williams's emergence heralded a new era of mighty serving and all-court athleticism, so her teenage challenger on Saturday night - 19-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu - feels like a game-changer in her own right. She was in the stands to watch Serena play at both the 2018 and 2019 Wimbledon ladies singles final in London.

"I think it's just inside of me somehow". "I honestly don't think Serena showed up".

"It would be interesting to see how it would be under different circumstances".

Yet Andreescu, who covered her ears at times, regained her steely composure to cross the finish line with an emphatic forehand victor, her 19th of the match.

The lead up to making the final seemed relatively easy for the 6-time champion, as she swept aside the bulk of her competition with relative ease. Bianca played a wonderful match. I think her returns make me play better and puts pressure on my serve.

But Andreescu simply played better and earned every bit of glory after not qualifying for the U.S. Open previous year. He says Andreescu's run will help the sport in Canada. "It's definitely frustrating, but for the most part I am still here". Bianca defeated Bencich of Switzerland 7-6 (7-3), 7-5 in the semi-finals and entered the final.

"I could barely hear myself think, it was really, really loud", Andreescu said. The match is best remembered for Andreescu - who hadn't yet been born the first time Williams won the U.S. Open in 1999 - consoling the top player of this generation and letting Williams know just how much of an influence she has been, CBS Sports reports.

Standing between Serena and the ever elusive 24th Grand Slam title will be Bianca Andreescu in the final. "I'm just trying to win Grand Slams".

"I've always dreamt of this moment ever since I was a little kid. I believe I could have just been more Serena today", she said.

"Being in the final is really special". I guess I got to keep going if I want to be a professional tennis player.

In the quarters, it was Elise Mertens, the 25th seed, who took a set off Andreescu, this time the first one of the match as she took advantage of several of the young Canadian's mistakes.

Andreescu's hard work has also earned her some high-profile fans in the sports world. "She's very exciting to watch".

"It's hard for us to realize because she was in three finals, so you feel she's ready".
