Serena Williams is on her Way to the #USOpen Final, Where She will Compete for her 24th Grand Slam Title with Bianca Andreescu

Serena Williams’ first grand slam victory was 20 years ago this month. She was 17 years-old.

Over the past 20 years, Serena Williams has won 29% of women’s grand slams, one of them while pregnant.

She’s about to walk into her 33rd final. She turns 38 in three weeks.

Serena Williams moved into a 10th US Open final and picked up a record-equaling 101st win in New York by routing Elina Svitolina 6-3, 6-1 but the number she might still be preoccupied with is 24.

Collecting a 24th major Saturday would tie the American with Margaret Court for tennis’ all-time lead, and the 37-year-old is hoping to get over the finish line after losing her last three grand slam finals — which had never previously happened in her storied three-decade career.

On the other side of the net will be fellow North American Bianca Andreescu, the 19-year-old Canadian who rallied to defeat Belinda Bencic 7-6(3) 7-5 and make a maiden grand slam final.
