07 September 2018

The Japanese star, who lost to Cilic in his only grand slam final appearance to date four years ago, gained some semblance of revenge as he triumphed 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-4 in a match that lasted four hours and eight minutes.

No. 14 Madison Keys, the 2017 runner-up, meets No. 20 Naomi Osaka of Japan in the second semifinal Thursday.

Williams' only stumble came at the beginning of the match, when Sevastova broke her first service game to win the first two games of the match.

The 29-year-old is in his third semi-final at the US Open and sixth at the majors.

Suarez Navarro enjoyed a fine run in NY, where she upstaged sixth seed Caroline Garcia and ended Maria Sharapova's impeccable record under the lights in the Big Apple, however, the 30th seed could not match Keys.

Osaka's first serve percentage was only 59 percent but she did not concede a point behind her first serve the entire first set and only surrendered seven points on serve over the match. She's still in search of major title No. 1. Part of this has to do with her style of play.

Osaka, the daughter of a Japanese mother and Haitian father, said she enjoyed playing in the blistering heat of NY which has been such a talking point of the tournament.
