US Open: Serena Williams still fails in her quest for a 24th Grand Slam

Serena Williams lost in the semi-final of the US Open to Belarusian Victoria Azarenka (1-6, 6-3, 6-3) on Thursday. The American still misses the opportunity to get closer to a 24 Grand Slam title, the record.

Serena Williams again experienced a failure in her quest for a 24th Grand Slam title, an absolute record held by Margaret Court. The American lost to Belarusian Victoria Azarenka (1-6, 6-3, 6-3) on Thursday in the semi-finals of the US Open. However, she had started perfectly before suffering the superiority of the double winner of the Australian Open (2012, 2013).

Serena hasn’t won a Grand Slam since 2017

Azarenka will play the third Grand Slam final of her career on Saturday against the Japanese Noami Osaka. At 38, time is running out for Serena Williams in her quest for the record. She hasn’t won a Major since the Australian Open in 2017 and hasn’t triumphed at the US Open since 2014.

As for six years, it will therefore follow the final between Azarenka and Naomi Osaka with an outside eye. The latter qualified for the final, two years after her title, by eliminating the American Jennifer Brady (41st) (7-6, 3-6, 6-3). Facing 25-year-old Brady, Osaka appeared in full confidence. “I wanted to get out of this period of confinement by being positive, it doesn’t matter if I lose or win, but knowing that I would make 100% of the effort,” she reacted after the match.

Prior to the US Open, she reached the Cincinnati final but forfeited just before the game due to a left thigh injury. Since then, she wears a huge bandage, which seems more there to reassure her than to protect her.
