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!
