“It’s really amazing, not only for myself but just for American tennis,” Keys said after her win over Kaia Kanepi Wednesday night. “I’m really excited and, you know, proud of all of us for getting this far and having it going to be, you know, USA all the way.”

The 37-year-old Venus Williams is the only one of the four to have made the semifinals at the US Open before. She won the title in 2000 and 2001. Sloane Stephans, Madison Keys and CoCo Vandeweghe are all appearing in their first US Open semifinal, the second of their career.

9 Comments for All-American Grand Slam Women’s Semifinals [Chart]

RZ Says:

Impressive that we get 4 US women in the semis at a tournament where Serena is not playing.

gonzalowski Says:

I was going to say ‘incredible!’, but it hapenned 5 times already. And without Serena, yes.

BBB Says:

I think it’s still incredible! We were lucky to have Martina all those years. And the USTA has done a horrible job of grooming talent for years now, so this is pretty impressive.

SG1 Says:

Coco Vandeweghe and Sloane Stephens. Hard to believe they would be in that final 4. And Madison Keys with her wrist issues. About as unlikely a final 4 as there could be.

Really like the way Venus has changed her forehand. Much more spin and safety margin. Good on her for making that change this late. And she still hits it with plenty of power.

Have to pick Venus to go all the way. I think it’s going to be her and Keys for the title and that match is a total pick’em. I have no clue who comes out of that match up with the trophy. Madison is very hungry but Venus hasn’t won slam in a long time. Should be a great final if these two meet.

BBB Says:

What a crazy match this is!

BBB Says:

I am pretty sure I have never seen defense like the defense Sloane is playing.

t4t Says:

I am sad. I was supporting Venus!

BBB Says:

I was rooting for Venus too, but at least Sloane rose to the occasion….

Keys just destroyed Vandeweghe.

t4t Says:

Hope Maddie beats Sloane. Sloane is playing well.
