Serena Williams beats Anastasija Sevastova to reach final

Serena Williams beats Anastasija Sevastova to reach final

Earlier, Osaka defeated Lesia Tsurenko 6-1, 6-1 in the last eight, admitting she was "freaking out" inside.

Initially, it looked like the match might follow a similar storyline from 2014 when seventh seeded Cilic took the opening set from a sluggish Nishikori.

The 21st-seeded Nishikori and No. 7 Cilic traded the lead and momentum for more than 4 hours. Keys also lost to Stephens in the French Open semifinals this June. So this time I went straight to the net.

Barely a year after giving birth to daughter Olympia, Williams is on the cusp of regaining her winning ways at almost 37 years old, having returned to the tour in March but only recent rediscovered the movement necessary to triumph.

Williams dominated Anastasija Sevastova, 6-3, 6-0, at the US Open on Thursday to advance to her second consecutive Grand Slam final. "Especially after coming from injury, I think I'm enjoying this challenge".

Osaka's first serve percentage was only 59 percent but she did not concede a point behind her first serve the entire first set and only surrendered seven points on serve over the match.

But Keys, the highest seed remaining in NY at 14, will get another opportunity to feature in the final following her 6-4, 6-3 win over Suarez Navarro on Wednesday.

"Unfortunately during this tournament, I had many issues with my health, and today was not my day obviously".

"I've gotten a lot better managing my emotions once it gets to this part and knowing that everything is going to be probably more amped up, " she said. She then dealt with complications related to blood clots. She recovered to win in three sets, with her opponent accusing her after the match of acting.

It was another hot afternoon Wednesday, with temperatures in the 30s C, but feeling much hotter due to the humidity.




On Wednesday, Osaka only needed 12 winners because a whopping 31 of her other points came via unforced errors by Tsurenko.

"I hate matches like this", Tsurenko said.

Unable to compete in last year's event due to injury, his last semi-final appearance came in 2016 where he lost to eventual victor Stan Wawrinka.

On Saturday, Williams will face 2017 runner-up Madison Keys, the No 14 seed, or 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka of Japan, who were scheduled to play each other in the second semifinal.

"To break in both sets, having solid games there, was really important tonight", Keys said in her on-court post-match interview.

She said: "It means a lot". "And not shying away from those, but just really being honest about it and talking about it".

Osaka, whose father is Haitian, is the first Japanese woman since the start of the Open era to reach the U.S. Open semifinals and the first to reach any Grand Slam semifinal since Kimiko Date did it in 1996 at Wimbledon.

He is into his third major semifinal, all in NY but is still in search of his initially Slam trophy. "I still haven't totally processed this match". I'm so grateful for the opportunity to play on this court.

"I was struggling. He was struggling".
