Coco Gauff, seeded sixth at the US open, will look for an upset when she takes the court at Flushing Meadows in New York against No. 2 seed Aryna Sabalenka on Saturday.
The 19-year-old from Florida is the youngest American of any gender to reach the US Open final since 17-year-old Serena Williams. When Williams accomplished the feat back in 1999, she won the earliest of her 23 major singles titles. Now, Gauff also has an opportunity to win her first Grand Slam title.
Gauff swept No. 10 seed Karolina Muchova 6-4, 7-5 on Thursday to advance to this stage. The semifinal match included a 50-minute delay after a protestor glued his feet to the Arthur Ashe Stadium stands.
A few hours later, Gauff's Belarusian opponent initially struggled against No. 19 Madison Keys. But Sabalenka overcame the slow start to defeat the American 0-6, 7-6 (7-1), 7-6 (10-5). She'll have a slight edge of experience, as this is the 25-year-old's second career Grand Slam final.
