Serena Williams beat No. 5 seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-3, 6-1 to advance to another U.S. Open final.

Williams will be playing in the fourth final of her last six major tennis tournaments.

She was runner-up in last year’s U.S. Open, losing to Naomi Osaka in the finals.

Williams will play No. 15 Bianca Andreescu in Saturday’s final.

If she wins, she will tie Margaret Court’s record for 24 Grand Slam singles titles.

Her semi-final was her 101st career match victory at Flushing Meadows, equaling a tournament record set by Chris Evert.

“It’s just impressive, I guess,” Williams said. “I don’t think about it. I just come out here and do what I can.”
