When you talk about tennis these days and, in particular the women's side of the game, it is fair to say that the sport has been dominated by the Williams sisters for the past few decades, with Serena Williams being one of the greatest tennis players to ever pick up a racket. But now, it seems that the tide could well be about to turn in the women's game.
The US Open has been taking place for the past few weeks now and, with Serena Williams out of action due to her pregnancy, all eyes were on the top seeds to go on to take the title. However, while we were all looking to the top foreign players in the game, it has actually come down to two American tennis players, who will fight it out to be the one to make history.
The US Open final will see American stars Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys going head to head, to become the first American woman, without the surname Williams, to win the title since 1998. It really is a huge opportunity for both women, as they are both also looking to win their very first grand slam title, which could well be the first of many to come.
Many people are tipping Madison Keys to beat Sloane Stephens in the US Open final but you cannot write her off, as Sloane has played some fantastic tennis on route to the final and will be full of confidence. We are expecting this to be a very close final and possibly one of the best in recent years, so make sure you do not miss history in the making.
