Sloane Stephens for the Win at the 2017 US Open

10 September 2017

In Saturday's final, Stephens will meet the victor between No. 20 CoCo Vandeweghe and No. 15 Madison Keys, who were set to square off in the second all-American semifinal later Thursday night.

"I told her I wished there could be a draw because I wish we could have both won". There's a lot of things in my head right now so I'm struggling to come up with words.

Originally from Florida, she now lives and trains in California. She was World No. 934 less than five weeks ago.

Sloane Stephens reached a maiden grand slam final with a surprise win over Venus Williams at the US Open.

United States Tennis Association CEO and Chair Katrina Adams said the semifinal milestone is serving notice that the American game is back.

"The proof is in the pudding". So we don't ever need to discuss the state of American tennis. En route the final, the 24 year-old had beaten Venus Williams in the semi finals. Williams finished with 51 unforced errors, to Stephens' 27.

When Keys hit a forehand into the net to end it, Stephens put her hand over her mouth as if in disbelief, closed her eyes for an instant, and then joined the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium in celebrating.

"Prime Minister agreed that we would open two more Industrial Training Centers in the near future in Myanmar", said Jaishankar. He added that it is important for both the nations to work together as they both share similar security concerns.

"It just required a lot of fight, a lot of grit", Stephens said.

"I don't know how I got here, just hard work, that's it". "She is the most graceful, the most elegant player".

"I obviously didn't play my best tennis today and Sloane was very supportive". Who will win the US Open titles this year? Prior to this run in the US Open, she was well-known for her win over Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Australian Open.

"We're still proud of her", Mark Kinsey of Rock Island, said of Keys.

"Those are moments where you have to dig deep and figure out how to get the ball on the court and have a big game", Williams said. Now Stephens will go on to the final where she'll await Thursday's other semifinal result. "Parents, if you kids want to do something enough, don't give up on them", she added.

"She is one of the greatest players, forceful and elegant, I have everything nice to say about her".
