American women dominate the 2017 US Open

United States Tennis Association CEO and Chair Katrina Adams said the semifinal milestone is serving notice that the American game is back.

And that showed in the final stages as she held her nerve superbly against a player who first made the US Open final 20 years ago.

For Williams, the defeat completed a tremendous year at grand slams, the 37 year-old seven-time major victor having been runner-up at the Australian Open and Wimbledon. In that deciding set, Stephens nudged ahead a couple times, but Williams reeled her back in, with Stephens eventually forced to serve at 4-5 to stay in the match.

In a clash between two first-time major finalists, Stephens was too good for American countrywoman Madison Keys 6-3 6-0 on Saturday. Keys is 1-1 in final appearances on hard court.

"I have no words to describe my feelings and what it took to get here. I've played a couple of three-setters", she said. She reached a career high singles ranking of 11th in the world, but is unseeded at the US Open due to a significant foot injury that required surgery and forced her out of play earlier in the year.

In the decisive third set, Stephens broke Williams at love for a 6-5 lead when Venus smacked a backhand wide on game point. On Sep 7th, Keys entered into semi final by defeating Kanepi with a score of 6-6, 6-3.

"We're always keeping tabs on each other and rooting for each other", Keys told media after her semi-final victory. Williams finished with 51 unforced errors, to Stephens' 27. With her younger sister Serena out of the tournament and giving birth to a girl last Friday, Venus Williams was also looking for her first Grand Slam title since 2008.

Both athletes brought their own weaknesses and strengths to the match.

On Williams' next serve, Stephens made two incredible shots to go up 30-0 in the game. Since her return, the American has won 14 of her last 16 matches, all against Top-50 opponents. In the third set, Stephen acquired 7 points while the William acquires 5 points.
