US Open 2023 women's final: Live updates, results of Coco Gauff vs Aryna Sabalenka in New York
Gauff and Sabalenka compete for their first Grand Slam title at the US Open, showcasing their impressive summer performances.
In the highly anticipated 2023 US Open women's final, two formidable players, Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff, will go head-to-head in a battle for their first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows. Both players have had exceptional summers and have shown tremendous growth in their game.
Gauff currently leads their head-to-head series with a 3-2 record. However, Sabalenka emerged victorious in their most recent encounter at Indian Wells in March, defeating Gauff 6-4, 6-0. Gauff's performance earlier this season was not as consistent, but a change in coaching has proved to be beneficial, as she has amassed an impressive 17-1 record since Wimbledon.
For Gauff, this marks her second major final, having previously reached the 2022 French Open final. Her journey to the US Open final was solidified after a hard-fought victory over 10th-seeded Karolina Muchova, with a score of 6-4, 7-5. This achievement also makes Gauff the youngest American, male or female, to reach the title match at Flushing Meadows since the legendary Serena Williams in 1999.
On the other hand, Sabalenka is on the verge of achieving her best career ranking, as she is set to claim the world No. 1 spot from Iga Swiatek in the upcoming week. Swiatek's surprising loss in the Round of 16 has opened the door for Sabalenka to make her mark.
Sabalenka's semifinal match against Madison Keys did not start off well, as she was swept in the first set. However, this setback ignited a fire within her, and she fought back to win the match 0-6, 7-6 (7-1), 7-6 (10-5). The Belarusian star has already tasted Grand Slam success, having secured her first title at the Australian Open earlier this year. Now, she stands just one match away from adding another prestigious title to her name.
The 2023 US Open women's final is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET and will be broadcasted on ESPN, with streaming available on fubo (free trial available). Stay tuned for live updates, thrilling highlights, and expert analysis as these two exceptional athletes battle it out on the court.
