US Open women’s singles final: What time? What channel? How do I stream it?

Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka go head-to-head in Saturday’s US Open women’s singles final at Flushing Meadows. 

Osaka, 22, will be fighting for her second US Open title after she beat 23-time grand slam champion Serena Williams in 2018. 

The world No 9 booked her ticket to the final after she beat American Jennifer Brady in a tough match which ended 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 6-3.

Osaka said ahead of the final: “Mentally I feel stronger, and I feel fitter now. I feel like I’ve definitely been getting more confident in myself. I feel like all these matches apply to each other, and once it gets to a third set, as long as I stay calm, the outcome could go in my favour.”

Williams was looking to seal her 24th grand slam title to match Margaret Court’s all-time record, but world No 27 Azarenka ran out winner 1-6 6-3 6-3. 

The 31 year-old will now play her first major final since losing to Williams at the 2013 US Open.

Osaka and Azarenka were set to face each other for a fourth time in the WTA’s Western & Southern Open final two weeks ago, but Osaka pulled out after suffering from a hamstring injury. 

Azarenka said: "She's super powerful, so I'll have to stay strong and have fun. Playing a final is a blessing and a great opportunity, so I'll take all the fun out of it.”

Here is everything you need to know ahead of this evening’s clash.
