One will contest her 12th Slam final. The other, her first. The winds from the tropical storms that are bombarding the east coast wrecked havoc on today's semifinals. The rains may postpone the final Slam final of the season.
But if the match happens as scheduled, expect some on-court hurricanes.
These are the WTA's two most dramatic Drama Queens. And the No. 1 ranking is on the line.
Serena's been to the pinnacle before, back in 2003, but no player has fallen and returned with more time in between.
Serena is playing for history.
Jelena was at the top for a week, a few weeks ago, but her ascension was decried by many, including yours truly, because she hadn't even contested a Slam final.
Jelena is playing for legitimacy.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the drama.
No matter what happens, a tropical storm will prevail.
