2020 US Open: Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka win, will face off in women's final


Just two years removed from her last trip to the US Open final, where she beat Serena Williams, Osaka spoke highly of the Flushing Meadows environment where she could possibly win the third Grand Slam of her career.


And suit her well it did as one of the pivotal moments of the match began with the net helping a backhand of hers trickle over to the other side.


Azarenka's victory over Williams later in the evening was a case of a flipped switch after an early breakdown.


Williams appeared to be the much better player early on, taking the first set in dominant fashion 6-1.


The 39-year-old had to call a full medical timeout while serving at 40-40, with Azarenka up 1-0 in the third set to take care of what appeared to be an ankle injury.


While Williams was able to return to the match and show some signs of life, Azarenka never wavered and was able to keep the pressure on her opponent to take the win.
