After a fortnight of tennis, it all comes down to this weekend. Tonight at the US Open in Flushing, Queens, the great Serena Williams will play for the women's singles title against Canadian Bianca Andreescu. The match shapes up as a battle for (and of) the ages: Williams is 37 years young and going for her 24th Grand Slam singles win, which would tie the all-time record set by Margaret Court. Canadian Andreescu is all of 19 and playing in her first Grand Slam. Both players are in top form. Williams has only dropped one set in the entire tournament so far, and Andreescu hasn't lost a completed match in any tournament since February.
Tomorrow night the men's final pits Rafael Nadal against Daniil Medvedev. Nadal is tennis royalty and going for his 19th Grand Slam title, second all-time to Roger Federer at 20. Medvedev enters his first Grand Slam final after a controversial tournament that saw him thank booing fans after appearing to give them the finger. The Russian is playing well this year and the US Open Final will be his fourth final in the last four events he's entered. Nadal started the US Open as the 2nd seed and has been favored to win since Federer lost in the quarter-final and top seed Novak Djokovic dropped out after an injury. While Medvedev is in top form, this is likely Nadal's best opportunity to win another US Open with his two main hard-court rivals out of the picture.
