All 4 U.S. Open women semifinalists are American for the first time in 36 years

While Serena Williams, the most dominant player in tennis history with 23 Grand Slam singles titles, is home with her newborn baby, her countrywomen are dominating at the U.S. Open: all four semifinalists are American.

“We’re gonna have four American women playing tomorrow, and that’s pretty awesome,” No. 15 seed Madison Keys said after winning her quarterfinal match. “We all were rooting for each other today.”

Keys, 22, beat Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who had to make it through the qualifying tournament to make the main draw. She will play CoCo Vandeweghe, who beat world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova to make the finals.
