Flushing Meadows New York, USA
American tennis superstar Serena Williams has made it into the semifinals of the 2020 US Open. At this stage of the tournament, Serena Wiliams will play against Victoria Azarenka from Belarus.
Victoria Azarenka is a hugely accomplished player and she seems to have turned back the years in this tournament as she has looked exceptional. Azarenka has only lost 1 set in the entire tournament and has won most of her matches with some ease. In the previous round, Victoria Azarenka defeated Elise Mertens in straight sets. It was a dominant performance by Victoria Azarenka as she only lost 1 game in the entire match. It has been a strong few weeks for Victoria Azarenka as she won the Cincinnati Masters prior to arriving at Flushing Meadows. With her confidence high, Victoria Azarenka will feel that she has an outstanding chance of winning this tournament.
On the other side of the coin, Serena Williams has had to battle hard to make it this far into the tournament. Williams has lost a set in each of her last 3 matches and has made lots of mistakes. Williams has had to rely on her big serve as it seems like she has lost the ability to win big rallies with her speed not at the level it once was. Serena Williams is a hugely experienced player and while that has helped her in the previous rounds, it will be nullified here as she is playing against 2 times Australian Open winner in Victoria Azarenka. This is expected to be a tough challenge for Serena Williams.
Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka have played each other 23 times in the past with Williams winning on 19 occasions and Azarenka only winning 4 times. That being said, in the past 5 years, these two players have only played each other twice with both players winning on 1 occasion.
Free Tennis Pick:
Despite the dream of winning another Grand Slam title, I see Serena Williams losing this match. Victoria Azarenka has been playing at an elite level and I see her having the speed and agility that is lacking from Serena. This should be a close match but I see Victoria Azarenka being good enough to defeat Serena.
