Williams will be up against Victoria Azarenka in tomorrow’s final. Azarenka is advancing after beating Jelena Jankovic tonight: 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

According to Azarenka, the semifinal tonight was not easy. “It was a big challenge,” Azarenka said, “[Jankovic] really pushed me to dig deep.”

Tomorrow’s finals matches should be interesting because it’s the first time any of the four finalists will win the W&S Open title.

Let’s go John!
¡Vamos Rafa!
Let’s go Serena!
пойдзем Vika! (That’s supposed to say “Let’s go” in Belarusian but if not I apologize and blame Google Translate).
