Keys and Stephens into US Open Final

All four semi finallists were American which is great for US Tennis unfortunately only one can win.

Sloane Stephens outlasted No.9 seed Venus Williams, 6-1, 0-6, 7-5, in an incredible, topsy-turvy all-American barnburner on Thursday night. Stephens advances to the US Open final -- the first Grand Slam final of her career.

"I'm super happy to be in a Grand Slam final," Stephens said, in her post-match press conference. "To do it here, obviously, my home slam, is obviously more special. I think this is what every player dreams about."

Stephens had won their only prior meeting: a straight-sets encounter in the first round of the 2015 French Open. This was much more intense and protracted, but in the end, Stephens got another win over the seven-time Grand Slam champion, who was denied her third major final of the year.

"Fortunately but unfortunately, I had to play Venus," continued Stephens, "but having four Americans in the semifinals, I think that says a lot about American tennis and where we are right now. I don't think I would have had it any other way. I'm just super proud and honored to be a part of what these four girls were, what we did tonight."

No.15 seed Madison Keys is through to the US Open final for the first time in her career after putting together a dominant performance to shut out fellow American CoCo Vandeweghe in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2.

“It feels absolutely amazing,” Keys said in her post match press conference. “You know, these are the moments growing up that you dream about, and to be sitting here as a US Open finalist, it feels really amazing.”
