Venus’ First Major Final Since 2009



 [13] Venus Williams (USA) defeated [35] Coco Vandeweghe (USA) 6-7(3), 6-2, 6-3 in what has to be her best performance of the tournament.  Vandeweghe challenged her the entire match and Venus rose to the occasion beautifully.  She changed her game plan after dropping the first set and her experience on the big stage came to her rescue. She showed what confidence and determination will accomplish and is now in her first Major final since Wimbledon 2009.

[2] Serena Williams (USA) defeated Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) 6-2, 6-1 and sets up another Williams sisters final at a Major.  The last time they played each other in a Major final was in 2009. In Major finals, Serena leads 6:2. The irony of all this is that big sister may be the one who prevents Serena from winning her 23rd Major title. Consider how difficult this match will be for both sisters mentally and emotionally.

[17] Roger Federer (SUI)  defeated [4] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) 7-5, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3.  Federer now gets the chance to win his 18th Major when everyone thought it would never happen.  Federer showed why he was ranked number one for so many years today after dropping a two sets lead, he dug deep and held it together mentally to defeat his higher ranked opponent.

[3] Bob & Mike Bryan (USA) defeated Carreno-Busta/Garcia-Lopez (ESP) 7-6(1), 6-3 to get to their 30th Major final with hopes of winning their 17th Major doubles championship.


[4] Kontinen/Peers (FIN/AUS) def. Polmans/Whittington (AUS) 6-4, 6-4


Svitolina/Guccione (UKR/AUS) defeated [1] Mattek-Sands/M. Bryan (USA) by walkover, quite understandable.

Stosur/Groth (AUS) def. Hingis/Paes (SUI/IND) 6-3, 6-2
