Serena Williams Advances to Potentially Historic US Open Final.
Williams commanded over Elina Svitolina in a straight set semi-final, 6-3, 6-1.
With the victory, Williams tied Chris Evert's record of 101 U.S. Open singles wins.
If the 37-year-old is triumphant in the final, she'll tie Margaret Court's record for 24 tennis major wins.
When asked if the present tournament was her chance to clinch the record, Williams was pragmatic.
I don't know.
I literally haven't thought about it this tournament.
I've been way more chill, Serena Williams, via 'USA Today'.
After her loss to Williams, Svitolina aptly described the nature of the champion's game.
There's lots of power behind her shots all the time.
That's what makes her [an] unbelievable, legendary tennis player.
On the important moments, she step[s] up, [she] always step[s] up, Elina Svitolina, via 'USA Today'
