World Number eight, Serena Williams will be playing her 33rd major finals on Saturday in New York, and before she gets on board for her 24th crown, Williams will be watching Avengers animated series until it’s time to warm up for her championship match. 

“When you’re in a zone all day, at least I am, I’m focused all day, thinking about the match, how I’m going to do. So, yeah, that’s kind of just what I do. I just stay in bed and watch the Avengers animated series until it’s time to go,” Serena Williams said.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams will be taking on Canada’s Bianca Andreescu who will be playing her first career major finals at Flushing Meadows. Serena’s win on Saturday would certainly redefine the women’s game. 

The 37-year-old American legend will be tying with Margaret Court’s all-time record of Grand Slams. Court has won 24 Slams (11 in the Open Era and 13 before the Open Era).

Also, her sixth US Open title would equal Chris Evert’s record of US Open titles in the Open Era. The 24th Grand Slam title will give Serena the status of the oldest player, male or female, to win a Grand Slam title in the Open Era.

Andreescu will be creating history if she defeats Serena in Saturday’s final. Neither a Canadian man, nor a Canadian woman has lifted up a Grand Slam singles title, and by defeating Williams Bianca Andreescu will be the Canadian face of tennis. She is the first-ever US Open Candian singles finalist.

Despite being plagued with injuries, the Mississauga native, Andreescu has been having an excellent run on the WTA circuit this year. After her Indian Wells 2019 title as a wildcard entrant, Bianca Andreescu lifted up the Rogers Cup 2019 title in Toronto after playing 15 hours of incessant tennis in before the Toronto finals.
