US Open Day 11 Women's Tips: Sevastova capable of pushing Serena

Naomi Osaka 2018 US Open

Williams is a heavy [1.23] favourite to make the final, and I make this a little short against a rapidly improving opponent - Sevastova has won 15 of her last 17 matches and this year on hard court, has held 66.1% and broken 42.5% (combined 108.6%). I was up 4-1 and he came back.

She dropped only seven points on her serve playing on Arthur Ashe Stadium and needed just 57 minutes to rip through Tsurenko.

Osaka will face 14th-seeded Madison Keys in the first major semifinal appearance for a Japanese woman since Date reached the final four at Wimbledon in 1996.

She raced to a 3-0 lead in the first set and then 4-0 in the second against the shaky Tsurenko, who finished with more unforced errors than points in her first major quarter-final. Marin Cilic will face Kei Nishikori three years after the 2014 final won here by the Croatian player in straight sets.

"I've seen her play a lot, " Williams said.

It was a much different outcome from 2014 when the big-hitting Cilic floored the Japanese counter-puncher 6-3 6-3 6-3 to claim the US title.

Japan's previous best was at Wimbledon in 1995, when both Shuzo Matsuoka and Kimiko Date lost in the quarter-finals.

"I'm working very hard, and we are all in the team, to make sure that Naomi one day might own the court like Serena", Bajin said.

Demarai Gray was then played in but Alisson saved his shot well down low as Leicester stared to get back into the game. It wasn't a good performance in most aspects; pressing defending, keeping the ball, it was tough work".

Keys began her US Open campaign with a confident 6-4 6-4 win over Pauline Parmentier before dismissing her compatriot Bernarda Pera 6-4 6-1.

When Nishikori became the first Asian male to reach a Grand Slam singles final four years ago, hundreds of fans packed into a convention hall to cheer him on at a standing-room-only public viewing event in his hometown of Matsue.

"I really don't think it's that hot, sorry". Flushing Meadows might be more special to the player herself, however: it was the venue of her first-ever Grand Slam title, way back in 1999. Williams has won 78 percent of her first-serve points, compared to Sevastova's 68 percent.

But after laboring through the heat in her previous match, Tsurenko said she was sick Wednesday, waking up with a sore throat and not breathing well.

"I don't know why we always play five sets but it was good tennis".

The Californian has dropped just a single set so far at the 2018 edition of the United States slam, to Aleksandra Krunic in the third round, and has a 2-0 edge against her upcoming Japanese opponent.

Keys, who fired six aces and fended off both break point opportunities against her during the match, told reporters that adapting to Suarez Navarro's versatile play proved critical.

This will be the fourth meeting between Keys and Osaka, and their second at the US Open. "I didn't want to show this kind of game in front of this big crowd, but unfortunately I'm just not able to play now".
