Madison Keys completed the all-American semifinals at the 2017 US Open, confidently defeating Kaia Kanepi in Wednesday’s night match. The 15th-seeded Keys will next face 20th-seeded compatriot Coco Vandeweghe, who made her way into the final four by upsetting world No.1 Karolina Pliskova earlier in the day, setting up the third meeting between the two Americans within the last few weeks.
The first WTA semifinal pair was determined on Tuesday and it also features Americans, Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens.
