At U.S. Open, Serena Williams tries to tighten in on No. 24

1 min read

Serena Williams is once again in a latter stages of a Grand Slam contest as she pursues her record-equaling 24th vital championship.

Williams faces No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina in a U.S. Open semifinals Thursday night.

The 37-year-old American already owns 23 singles Slam trophies, 6 from Flushing Meadows.

Only one actor in a story of tennis has 24: Margaret Court, who won some-more than half of hers opposite pledge foe before professionals were certified to Grand Slam tournaments.

Williams has mislaid her past 3 vital finals, including during a U.S. Open final year.

The second semifinal is No. 13 Belinda Bencic opposite No. 15 Bianca Andreescu.

The 19-year-old Andreescu is in a U.S. Open’s categorical pull for a initial time.
