Serena Williams Poised to Take 3rd US Open Title

This Saturday evening, under the bright lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, Serena Williams will be going up against Yelena Jankovic for what will be her 3rd US Open title, if she wins it.
Having beaten her sister, Venus in the quarterfinal, and dispatching Dinar Safina in the semis, Serena won some tough battles against some of the top players on the circuit this year, while making it look easy. Having missed singles gold at the Olympics, and also failing to claim any of the 4 major titles (yet) this year, here's hoping that she wins the big one in Flushing Meadows!

Yelena Jankovic is playing her very best tennis lately, matching her opponents stroke for power stroke in her matches. Her game is really starting to mature and improve, so Saturday's match promises to be a great contest. Serena had better be bringing her A game. Judging by the way she's been playing the past two weeks, I'm not doubting that she will. If she wins this, it will be her 9th Grand Slam title.

You all know that I am such a Serena Williams fan. I cannot help but to root for her! Good luck on Saturday, Serena! I will be watching! :)

Update: Due to torrential rains, the US Open Women's Final has been moved to Sunday, Sept 7th at 9pm EST.

I personally think that this is great! With one more day to rest up, these ladies will definitely be coming out and putting their absolute best tennis on the court!

I love the Williams sisters so much. I'm glad Serena was able to get some rest after the battle she had with her sister. Their match was the final for me. LOL

Go Serena! Show them that they better not forget who has the power.

She did it! I stayed up all night to see her win. It was touch and go there for a moment because Jankovic was giving her a challenge, but she got it done.

Not only did Serena win the title, she is now number one in the world. It always makes me proud when they win. I love them both so much.

By the way, I love Venus' new hairdo.

That was SUCH a good game!!
Jankovic has nothing to be ashamed about. She played her heart out!
She will hopefully make it to the finals again.

They had some rallies, boy!! I mean, damn near 30 stroke rallies.
Amazing tennis put out on the court by these ladies today.

And yeah, strongblkwmn, I am so happy that Serena is now #1!!
She SO deserves it!

Go, Serenaaaaaaaa!!!!

And yes, Venus was looking quite fetching with that new do.
These girls both have it going on.
NO stopping them now! ;)
