Naomi Osaka through to her first Grand Slam final

Brilliant performance from Naomi Osaka. She saved an incredible 13 breakpoints against a top player like Madison Keys. She never lost her composure and deservedly goes through to the final.

Keys vs Osaka 2-6, 4-5*

Keys gets a love hold with an ace down the T. That won't matter unless she breaks Osaka when the Japanese serves for the match.

Keys vs Osaka 2-6, *3-5

Keys gets her twelfth breakpoint opportunity of the match, and predictably, loses it to a forehand winner at the net from Osaka. She saves a gamepoint with her 12th forehand winner but then sends one long to allow Osaka to hold on the next point. The World No 19 is just a game away from reaching her first-ever Grand Slam final.

Keys vs Osaka 2-6, 3-4*

Quick hold to 15 from Keys. But can she get the break off Osaka to get back into the match?

Sept 07, 2018 - 07:39 (IST)

Keys vs Osaka 2-6, *2-4

Two very good serves wide by Osaka before Keys makes it 30-30 with a backhand winner. An Osaka forehand winner is followed by a backhand winner from Keys to bring the score to deuce. But Keys overhits her forehand to give Osaka the hold. Keys threatening but unable to get the elusive break.

New York: Serena Williams and Madison Keys will attempt to make it another all-American women's final at the US Open.

Williams is looking to reach the final for the ninth time. She plays a semifinal against No 19 seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia, who is appearing in the last four of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Sevastova ousted defending champion Sloane Stephens in the quarterfinals and has never faced Williams.

Keys, the No. 14 seed and runner-up a year ago, faces No. 20 Naomi Osaka of Japan in the night's other semifinal. Keys has beaten Osaka all three times they have played, including this year at the French Open and two years ago at the US Open when she rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the third set.

Williams first won at the US Open in 1999 and has won the tournament six times. She is looking for a 24th Grand Slam singles trophy that would tie Margaret Court for the most in tennis.
