Venus Williams crashes out of US Open

Stephens too good for Keys in US Open final

When Williams appeared more worn out, Stephens strategically placed the ball in spots on the court she knew Williams could no longer hunt down.

Williams' first title match in NY came in her US Open debut in 1997.

Due to the foot injury and Surgery, Stephens 957th ranked sidelined for about 11 months and this year entered the USA open.

When Williams stood two points from victory returning at 30-all while leading 5-4 in the third, she was forced into uncomfortable positions.

"Venus looked a little bit nervous, she looked a little bit nervous in the Wimbledon final too, which is understandable at 37 years old because you're not going to have many more chances", said the Swede. She hasn't been to a U.S. Open semifinal in seven years, and hasn't won a Grand Slam of any kind in more than nine years.

Stephens regained the initiative with a string of incredible winners and served out the biggest win of her career and of her impressive injury comeback.

Williams struggled in the opening set against Stephens, her 17 unforced errors proving costly.

Since then, she has racked up 14 wins in 16 matches, reaching the semi-finals in Toronto and Cincinnati before making a second career semi-final at the majors in NY. I don't know how I got here. While Stephens had defeated Venus Williams in the semis while Keys outplayed CoCo Vandeweghe.

"I have no words to describe what I'm feeling what it took to get here".

Williams said, "It was definitely a contrast of play".

"When I was 11 years old my mum took me to an academy and one of the coaches told her that I would be lucky to be a division II player and get a scholarship". Now Stephens will go on to the final where she'll await Thursday's other semifinal result.

She sealed a straightforward win on her third match point when Keys sent yet another forehand into the net.

And speaking at the trophy presentation, Stephens said: "I should just retire now, I told Maddie I'm never going to be able to top this".
