  • Women's round-up Keys dumps out fourth seed Svitolina Vandeweghe into first US quarters

US Open Semifinals 2017 tv channel is available on ESPN. It's been 15 years since two American women squared off for the championship at Flushing Meadows.

2 - Number of Spanish men (Rafael Nadal, Pablo Carreno Busta) in the semifinals, the first time that's happened at the U.S. Open. Also, which is the pride moment for America.

Sloane Stephens has won her first Grand Slam title courtesy of a straight-sets victory over compatriot Madison Keys in the final of the US Open this evening.

Asked what the all-American final said about the state of tennis in the country, Keys quipped: "We both have trophies, so I guess that says a lot". However, the final match starts at 1:30 AM (Indian Standard Time).

"I think we both just texted each other and said, "This really sucks", recalled Keys.

Sky Sports Tennis will have all the action from the US Open men's final covered via our website www.skysports.com/tennis with our live blogs and updates as the Grand Slam year reaches its climax. Ranked as high as 957th in the world as of August 1, Stephens will rise to 17th in the WTA Women's Singles Rankings on Monday. She made it to the fInal by beating Kaia Kanepi in the quarterfinals and then CoCo Vandeweghe in the semifinal.




After reaching back-t0-back semi-finals in Toronto, Cincinnati, and now New York, Stephens is projected to climb 900 ranking spots. With 17 unforced errors, Williams was all over the place.

It will be a clash of styles, between the first-strike tennis of Keys and the athletic prowess of Stephens, who has married attack and defence so brilliantly this tournament. A joyous Stephens began to walk around the court, waving to the crowd and to her player's box.

The second set was the first inverted, with Venus coming alive and handily taking down Stephens, 6-0.

In the second set, she held serve and went ahead to break Keys twice to register a 4-0 lead.

Keys said: "I think time away is good".

Stephens is just 24, which hopefully means she has a long career ahead of her: Venus is 37, and Serena is 35, and those two ladies are still killing it.
