Serena Williams faces Victoria Azarenka in US Open Final


Rematch! Reeeeeemaaaaaatch! In this corner, it’s defending champ Serena Williams. And, in the other corner, we have familiar challenger Victoria Azarenka.

Yes, they met last time in the finals of this same tournament. Here we go again. Here’s a brief match-up history that will make things interesting:

Last year in the finals of the same tournament, Williams defeated Azarenka 6-2, 2-6, 7-5. The two have met 16 times in their career, with Williams winning 13 times. Azarenka has won two out of the last three matches, though, most recently in March of this year.

Aw yeah. After years of dominating, Williams will have to prove she’s still got it vs Azarenka. Meanwhile, Victoria will be looking to be victorious (I’m sorry) with a chance at redemption.

Who you got?
