Canada's Bianca Andreescu is on to the US Open final.

The 19-year-old from Mississauga continued her impressive season with a 7-6 (3), 7-5 win over Switzerland's Belinda Bencic to advance to the Grand Slam tournament's final.

Andreescu will face a familiar foe in 37-year-old legend Serena Williams.

The eighth-seeded Williams rolled to a 6-3, 6-1 win over fifth seed Elina Svitolina to advance to the U-S Open final.

The 37-year-old Williams is seeking her seventh U.S. Open crown, but she has dropped her last three Grand Slam finals.

The two played in last month's Rogers Cup where Williams had to retire in the final after only four games due to back spasms.

When Andreescu plays Williams on Saturday afternoon, the veteran player will be looking for her 24th major title.
