US Open 2019: Serena Qualifies For Final By Outclassing Elina Svitolina

Serena Williams has another shot at winning a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles title after demolishing Elina Svitolina to reach the us open final.

The American, 37, overpowered the Ukrainian fifth seed to win 6-3 6-1.

Williams found her range quickly and dominated with her powerful, precise hitting which resulted in 33 winners in a match which lasted only one hour and 10 minutes.

Williams, seeded eighth, is aiming for her first grand slam win since giving birth in September 2017.

The six-time champion will face Swiss Belinda Bencic or Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu in tomorrow's final.
