When the US Open draw was made public a few weeks ago if both of them made it through, tennis fans were set for a rematch of the 2012 final where Serena Williams took on Victoria Azarenka.
Now, both World No1 Williams and World No2 Azarenka have made it through, tennis fans will get their due as the duo face each other yet again at Flushing Meadows.
Last year, it was the American who lifted the women's singles trophy, but this year Azarenka will look to get her revenge having defeated the 31-year-old in the last hard court clash they had prior to the year's final Grand Slam.
Serena Williams has looked on top of her game as she has not dropped a set and had her serve broken only in the semi-final against Li Na where she managed to win 6-0, 6-3.
Azarenka, 24, made little work of Flavia Pennetta in her semi-final displaying power and intent as she won 6-4 6-2.
Serena Williams , if she wins be would register her fifth US Open title and her 17th career singles Grand Slam.
She would also become the oldest women's winner since tennis turned professional in 1968, replacing Australian Margaret Court who was 31 years 55 days when she won in 1973.
Belarusian Azarenka on the other hand is looking to establish herself as the hard court queen as she seeks to add to her Australian Open title from earlier this year.
The match promises to be a treat for tennis fans but based on form Serena Williams looks like she has the edge against her much younger opponent.
