Today, Saturday September 8, 2018, is the Women’s Singles finals.

Who is playing? Serena Williams, USA vs. Naomi Osaka, Japan.

We know Serena – she is the powerhouse who has rocked Women’s tennis for a couple of decades now. Yes, we said decades! She won her first Grand Slam title in 1999. It was the US Open. She has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles in her career, and currently stands second to Margaret Court in terms of number of major wins. If she wins today, she will tie with Margaret Court, and will seal her spot at the top of the charts.

36 year-old Serena is up against 20 year-old Naomi Osaka from Japan. This is Naomi’s first Grand Slam final, and this is part of what the New York Times says she had to say about it: “Even when I was a little kid, I always dreamed that I would play Serena in a final of a Grand Slam. Just the fact that it is happening, I’m very happy about it.”

This will be a truly amazing match to watch and we wish them both lots of luck!

The Men’s Singles Finals will be held tomorrow, Sunday, September 9, 2018.

Who is playing? Novak Djokovic, Serbia, vs. Juan Martin del Potro, Argentina.

What happened to Federer? The crushing heat at this year’s US Open was too much for him to handle and he lost to John Millman. Where is Rafael Nadal? He suffered an injury and had to bow out of the tournament. Who will win tomorrow? Let’s just wait and see!
