In the US Open, world number 83 Sloane Stephens has beaten fellow American ninth seed Venus Williams 6-1, 0-6, 7-5 in the semi-finals at Flushing Meadows.

Madison Keys crushed Coco Vandeweghe 6-1, 6-2 and will meet Stephens in the final that will see a new grand slam champion crowned.

Saturday’s final will be an all-American face-off, the first time two US women have played for the title since 2002, when Venus lost to her younger sister Serena Williams.
