The women’s singles final is decided. As Serena Loses to pliskova,It’s Angelique Kerber vs Karolina Pliskova in Saturday’s title match. Reaching top of the world seemed to agree with Angelique Kerber, who celebrated her ascension to world number one with a 6-4 6-3 win over Caroline Wozniacki on Thursday to advance to the U.S. Open final.
The German left-hander was assured of becoming number one when the new rankings come out on Monday after top-seeded American Serena Williams was defeated by Czech 10th seed Karolina Pliskova 6-2 7-6(5) in the earlier semi-final. The outcome cost Williams not only a chance at a history-making 23rd grand slam title to eclipse Steffi Graf’s professional-era mark for major championships but also the No1 ranking that she’s held since February 2013 – a span of 186 weeks that equalled Graf’s record for consecutive weeks on top.
