Victoria Azarenka dashed Serena Williams’ hopes of making it to the final of the 2020 U.S. Open after defeating her on Thursday, September 9, 2020.

Williams struggled to keep with the fast pace of the semi-final as she stopped behind the baseline after a third-set point and leaned over, maintaining that pose as she clutched her lower leg and called for a trainer.

She added:

“Obviously, disappointed, but at the same time, I did what I could today. Other times, I’ve been close and I could have done better. Today, I gave a lot. I don’t think that [her leg] had anything to do with it. Ultimately, it didn’t affect my play at all.”
