US Open: Sloane Stephens bounces Venus Williams to reach final

US Open: Sloane Stephens bounces Venus Williams to reach final

Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens have won through to major finals for the first time in contrasting fashion.

Stephens played her usual defensive tennis, forcing her opponent to make the extra shot and testing her patience. Stephens took the first set in 24 minutes after breaking Williams twice and looked headed for an easy win.

There may only be one American ranked inside the world's Top 10 players, but four will take the court in the U.S. Open women's semifinals on Thursday night. After making it to the final of the Australian Open and Wimbledon this year, she'll try to break through at the home slam.

"If there's someone that I had to lose to today, I'm glad it was her".

President Donald Trump said "all options are on the table", not ruling out military action. Beijing opposed the us missile defense system in South Korea and called it a "stab wound".

Williams hugs Keys after a 2016 match. It could be as early as the grand slam that saw her beat the Open Era record earlier this year, the Australian Open.

In the first set, Stephens gets 6 points while the Willaim gets 1 point only.

Keys, the 15th seed in NY, was in devastating form, brushing past Vandeweghe 6-1 6-2 in just 66 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium. Though she was defeated in the two majors that she played this year, there's a big chance that she can win this time.

"Talk about a comeback, honestly I don't even know what to say.

On Tuesday, North Korea provoked worldwide alarm after it fired a mid-range missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido. Ren Guoqiang told reporters that all parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that escalate tension.

If you told me two months ago I'd be holding a finalist trophy at the US Open, I'd be really happy and proud of myself", Keys said after the match.

When asked how she was able to come back after being out of the game for so long, she said, "It required a lot of fight, a lot of grit".

"Madi is one of my best friends on tour and to play her here, I wouldn't have wanted to play anyone else". Stephens, from Plantation, Florida, had foot surgery following the 2016 Olympic Games and Keys, of Rock Island, Illinois, had wrist surgery.

Will Venus Williams reach her 16th Grand Slam final? Stephens won the final eight games of the match. "She is the most graceful, the most elegant player". The American said maybe she "should retire" after her victory in Arthur Ashe Stadium.
