Who will be doing the royal wave with the trophy at the US Open?

Last year at the US Open, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka met in the finals. Serena took home the prize after a 6-2 2-6 7-5 victory. Just last month, the two met again in the finals of the Cincinnati Open, with an eerily similar score of 2-6 6-2 7-6 (6) — this time with Vika as the victor. Now the two are facing each other in the finals once more at the USO, and tennis fans are hoping for another three-set battle between the two most powerful women in today’s game.

What can we expect from the two contenders? First off, powerful serving from Serena.

Vika will need to do be as consistent with her serve as she is with flipping that braid over her shoulder before the toss.
