Saturday 10th September and we’re on the verge of finishing 2016’s final slam. Serena Williams is out and more importantly her 186 week stint as the world’s best (current) female tennis player is over for now. Karolina Plisokova’s emphatic victory over Serena has awarded tonight’s opponent the honour of world number one. She must now try her hardest not to award Angelique Kerber the trophy too.

The head to head doesn’t exactly point us towards a winner, though the most recent meeting just over two weeks ago is huge! Pliskova tore Kerber apart and this will be in both players’ minds going in to tonight’s final. Even with this, we’d have to put our money on Kerber collecting her second slam but there’s every chance it could go down to the wire. Who do you think will lift the trophy in the big apple?
