Serena Williams has another shot at winning a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title after demolishing Elina Svitolina to reach the US Open final.
The American, 37, overpowered the Ukrainian fifth seed to win 6-3 6-1.
Williams, seeded eighth, is aiming for her first Grand Slam win since giving birth in September 2017.
The six-time champion will face Swiss Belinda Bencic or Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu in Saturday’s final.
Bencic, 22, and 19-year-old Andreescu, both competing in their first major semi-final, meet for the right to face Williams later in Thursday’s night session in New York.
