Tennis is back and SBS will broadcast all US Open 2020 men’s and women’s singles quarter-finals, semi-finals, and both finals LIVE, FREE and in HD.

Belarusian Azarenka will play Japan's Naomi Osaka in her third final at Flushing Meadows on Sunday - LIVE on SBS from 6am (AEST) - having lost the previous two to Williams in 2012 and 2013.    

Six-time US Open champion Williams came out firing winners from all sides of the Arthur Ashe Stadium court and wrapped up the opening set in little more than half an hour.

Azarenka, playing her first Grand Slam semi-final in seven years, raised her game in the second stanza and came out on top after some explosive exchanges of power-hitting.

The twice Australian Open champion kept up the pressure in the third as 38-year-old Williams struggled with an injury to her left ankle and sealed her place in the final with an ace.
