Serena Williams has another shot at winning a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title after demolishing Elina Svitolina to reach the US Open final.
The American, 37, overpowered the Ukrainian fifth seed to win 6-3 6-1.
Williams, seeded eighth, is aiming for her first Grand Slam win since giving birth in September 2017.
The six-time champion will face Canadian 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu in Saturday’s final in New York.
In a gripping encounter, Andreescu defeated 22-year-old Swiss Belinda Bencic 7-6 (7-3) 7-5, winning the last five games of the match.
