Serena Williams vs. Bianca Andreescu US Open Women’s Final – Williams Odds on to equal record 24 major titles

Published

on

Serena Williams will face 19-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu in the US Open Final.

A year on from her infamous outburst at chair umpire Carlos Ramos, Williams will have another shot at securing a record equaling 24th major title to go level with the great Margaret Court.

This will be her fourth attempt in 14 months to level the record, which is testimony to her skill, desire and class. The greatest of all time in the women’s game, no doubt.

Despite last year’s saga, she remains loved by many and rightly so.

The crowd on Arthur Ashe Stadium showed their support for her from her first serve right through to the winning point during her dominant semi-final win over Elina Svitolina on Thursday.

At the age of 37, Williams is like a fine wine, getting better and better with age. She’s lost just one set on her way to the final and is 10/11 to win in straight sets.

She played her first US Open in 1999, 9 months before Saturday’s opponent was even born.

But Bianca Andreescu will be no pushover. The 19 year old may lack experience on the big stage, but she has bags and bags of talent. She won five games on the bounce to secure a 7-6 7-5 semi final victory over Belinda Bencic and extend her unbeaten run to 23 games.

The Canadian, though, will have to be at her very best if she’s to claim her maiden major title. But there is hope for the youngster, with Williams losing her last three major grand slam finals.

Williams is 4/11 to avenge last year’s disappointment and claim her 24th major title whilst the new kid on the block is 5/2 to upset the favourite.
