Serena Williams to face off Jelena Jankovic in the US Open final

Serena Williams secures a place in the final after a 6-3, 6-2 win over Dinara Safina in the U.S. Open semifinals last night. Probably that wicked backhand Williams zinged off the Russian’s shoulder in the second set.
“Overall, she’s, I think, the strongest player on the tour, together with her sister,” Jankovic said.

“Nobody has the power that they have. We cannot compare.”
Jankovic who also made it to the final at the U.S. Open after beating Olympic champion Elena Dementieva 6-4, 6-4 must figure something.

However that is, if the weather permits. With Tropical Storm Hanna getting closer and rain in the forecast, tournament organizers made contingency made that could mean postponing the match until Sunday.
“I’m going to try my best and that’s all I care about,” Jankovic said, “even if it’s tomorrow or next day or in a week.”
