THE PREDICTION

Serena Williams is bidding to win her seventh US Open title and her first since 2014 as she faces Tsvetana Pinronkova in the quarter-finals at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. The two have met four times before and Williams has won each time although the last meeting came back in 2015. It is Pironkova who has arguably been playing the better tennis in the tournament so far having knocked out seeds Donna Vekic and Garbine Muguruza on the way to the quarters. The 32-year-old Bulgarian is the clear underdog coming into this game but she can really test Williams. Serena has been forced into a deciding set in her last two matches and Pironkova can do the same here. Williams has to be edged to get the win but it may not be as easy as many expect.
