  • Serena Williams defeated Karolina Pliskova at US Open

Defending champion Stephens finds a familiar foe across the net in Sevastova, beaten by the American at the same stage past year as Stephens roared to the title as an unseeded player.

Pliskova broke back with Williams double faulting at 30-40 down.

"She hit all first serves on the break points, which is always a little bit tougher to return", Pliskova said. From there the four-time Olympic gold medalist only continued to gain momentum, her serve once again becoming a reliable threat and her confidence gaining as she began to move to the net and use the whole court. She's not going to give you anything.

Pliskova then had three chances to break for 4-1, but failed to take the chances as Williams suddenly rediscovered her mojo, the 23-time slam champ rattling off eight straight games as she recovered from 4-2 down to win the first set and race into a 4-0 lead in the second.

Sevastova retired in 2013, returned to the game in the same year and since then has played some of her best tennis in NY.

From there, the result was never in doubt as Williams finished off with three aces and an overhead to seal her place in the final four.

She avenged a semi-final loss to Pliskova in the 2016 US Open and notched her first win over a top-10 player since she returned in March after the birth of daughter Olympia in September of previous year.

Giants collide when third-seeded del Potro - who claimed his lone Grand Slam title at the 2009 US Open - takes on Isner - the last American main remaining in the draw - for a semi-final berth. "Doesn't matter that she's No.17 or No.18 now".

"When you don't play the big points well and don't take your opportunities early, that could affect the outcome of the match", Stephens said. "I'm here to do my best".

"She's playing with the same power".

Serving for the match, the Latvian raced out to triple match point and although Stephens saved two of them, Sevastova sealed the win when the 25-year-old American pushed a backhand into the net.

"I think it was very physical today", Sevastova, who lost to Stephens during a US Open tune-up in Montreal last month, said during her on-court interview. "It's for semi-finals of US Open".

The defeats of Stephens and Pliskova completed the exodus of top 10 seeds, although Pliskova noted that Williams' 17th seeding - nine spots above her world ranking as she continues her post-baby comeback - was not reflective of her true abilities.
