Serena outserves Pliskova to make US Open semifinal return

05 Septembre, 2018, 05:10 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Serena Williams is walking down the tunnel now and stops for her pre-match interview with ESPN's Tom Rinaldi.

After defeating sister Venus, a two-time U.S. Open champion, in the third round at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Friday, Williams secured a 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 win over Kaia Kanepi on Sunday to advance to Tuesday's quarterfinals.

Williams rallied back on Tuesday night, winning eight games in a row to beat Pliskova 6-4, 6-3 in 86 minutes to advance to the semifinals. "I think today I didn't play those points well at all, even at the end, in the second set". Pliskova jumped up to a 3-1 lead, and completely shut Williams out in the fourth game.

The American, 36, is seeking her first Grand Slam trophy since giving birth to daughter Olympia last September. After trading games with Pliskova, Williams turned it on and won the next four games to take the first set 6-4.

"It was a great match for me at the time", Pliskova says.

"Mentally, physically, I just wasn't connecting", Stephens said.

However, according to the New York Times , that deal was set to expire soon had Nike not chosen to extend the contract. Nike is the NFL's official uniform sponsor, and the partnership was recently extended through 2028.

Sevastova broke the 25-year-old American's serve twice in the opening set, then broke her again to take a 2-0 lead in the second. Williams needs one more major title to match Margaret Court's record of 24.

Williams could still give the least one women's semifinalist after Stephens won an all-American final four past year.

Pliskova is a big server and hitter in her own right, someone who briefly spent time at No. 1 in the WTA rankings and was the runner-up at the US Open in 2016, when she beat Williams in the semifinals.

The defending champion was eliminated Tuesday, beaten by Anastasija Sevastova 6-2, 6-3 in the quarterfinals.

"Just stay hydrated throughout", Williams says.
