Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Serena Williams is now just one win away from clinching her 24th Grand Slam title.

The 37-year-old advanced to the finals of the US Open Thursday night after defeating Elina Svitolina in two sets, 6-3, 6-1.

Williams will now face Canada’s Bianca Andreescu on Saturday for the championship.
