US Open 2018: Serena Williams Into Semi-finals

Six-time US Open champion, Serena Williams has made it to the semi final of the 2018 edition of the competition.

Serena shook off a sluggish start to power past eighth-seeded Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday.

The US superstar, chasing a record-equalling 24th major title, surrendered an early break to Pliskova, but she roared back with a streak of eight straight games to put away the opening set and take a 4-0 lead in the second against the woman who beat her in the semi-finals at Flushing Meadows in 2016.

Williams who was clearly delighted, spoke on how she engineered the turnaround. She said;

“Well I don’t know,”

“The crowd was really rooting for me and I felt so bad because everyone out here was cheering and I wasn’t winning and I thought I’ve got to try harder.”

She finished the match with 13 aces and will take on Anastasija Sevastova for a place in the final after the 19th-seeded Latvian toppled defending champion Sloane Stephens 6-2, 6-3.
