Indeed - if she could have learned to serve properly she would have been a serious contender all the time.

:bowdown: Brands finally getting recognition, but we know he is going to win it this year.

Nice article. Honourable mentions to Roche and Kodes, the only male players besides Borg to have played multiple US Open finals without taking the title. Roche took the first set in both of his finals but lost in four. Kodes did the same in his first final (won the first, lost the next three - fourth set in a tiebreaker) and had a 2 sets to 1 lead in his next final.

World number twos Chang and Djokovic also have solid US Open records (one final and two semis).
