Serena Williams lost her bid for a 24th Grand Slam title Wednesday to Naomi Osaka.

Sportsbooks had listed Osaka as a -150 favorite versus Williams.  Serena was listed as the underdog at +120.  Osaka had been the 6-1 favorite to win the 2021 Australian Open with Williams at 8-1 odds.

“If I ever say farewell,” Serena said at a press conference following the loss, “I wouldn’t tell anyone.”

On Saturday, at 7:30 p.m. local time (3:30 a.m. EST), Osaka will meet first-time Grand Slam finalist Jennifer Brady of the United States for the championship. The 22nd-seeded Brady, who is from Pennsylvania and played college tennis at UCLA, prevailed in an epic, 18-point last game to edge No. 25 Karolina Muchova 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in the semifinals.

Brady dropped to her back at the baseline after saving a trio of break points, then converting her fifth match point when Muchova sent a forehand long.

“My legs are shaking,” Brady said. “My heart is racing.”

She lost to Osaka in a three-set thriller in the U.S. Open semifinals last September.

“Everyone’s just really excited whenever they play their first final,” Osaka noted about what awaits Brady, “but they’re also really nervous.”
