The U.S. Open tennis tournament 2012 will see the women's singles final take place Sunday with Serena Williams vs. Victoria Azarenka taking place from 5 p.m. ET. The match can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Serena Williams has been untroubled throughout the tournament, not even losing a set so far, and destroying all opponents without seeming to break a sweat. Her finalist opponent though will be no pushover. Victoria Azarenka is the current world number 1 and will be looking to stop Serena's march to another grand slam title.
Serena's form and history of grand slam wins will make her the favorite for the encounter. She has shown amazing form in recent months, with one of her best performances ever coming in the London 2012 Olympic Games final, where she almost completely white washed her opponent. She won that tie 6-0 6-1 in one of the most one-sided finals ever witnessed.
However, not many have condemned Sharapova for underperforming, but have heaped praise on Serena Williams for her blistering form. If Williams is in similar form today then Azarenka will simply be trying to avoid a white wash and get her name on the score board.
Even though Serena's demolition of opponents to the final has been immense, Azarenka has also impressed so far. Although she has faced some tougher matches and just pulled through her tie against defending champion Samantha Stosur in a third set tie-breaker in the quarterfinals. She also scraped through a tight match against Maria Sharapova.
The women's singles final was postponed until today as New York was hit by a tornado warning yesterday as a number of twisters were seen touching down across Queens and Brooklyn. The extreme wind conditions caused all sorts of troubles for the tennis players as they simply attempted to keep control of their shots rather than go all out for winners.
The weather forecast for Sunday is much better and should see the women's final completed with no issues.
