Venus Williams knocked out of US Open by Sloane Stephens

The 83rd-ranked Sloane Stephens is the 14th unseeded player to reach a major final in the Open era. All four women’s semifinalists at the US Open were Americans, for the first time at Flushing Meadows since 1981.

Sloane Stephens won 6-1, 0-6, 7-5 in a pulsating match. Venus had been bidding to become the second oldest Grand Slam finalist in the Open era after Martina Navratilova at Wimbledon in 1994.

The 9th seeded 37-year-old was the only member of the quartet who has participated in a Grand Slam singles final. She has won seven major championships, two at the US Open – in 2000 and 2001.
This year was also the first time in the Open era where all the top eight women’s seeds at a Grand Slam were eliminated by the quarters or earlier.

Stephens will play Madison Keys, also of the US, in Saturday’s final. Keys made it to the final after taking barely an hour to crush CoCo Vandeweghe 6-1 6-2. Both players, who are friends off the court, are hoping to win their first Grand Slam tournament.
