French Open 2018: Madison Keys beats Yulia Putintseva to reach semi-finals
08 June, 2018, 22:39
The 23-year-old, who lost to compatriot and good friend Sloane Stephens in last year's US Open final, could next face a repeat of that match at Flushing Meadows after a 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 victory over world number 98 Putintseva.
Earlier in the day, Keys, the 13th seed, reached the semifinals for the first time by seeing off Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. Stephens reached her first Grand Slam semifinal in 2013; Keys did it two years later.
Halep, who lost in last year's final, broke the 16th-seeded Belgian's serve six times on Court Philippe Chatrier. But before that, we are not going to be weird and awkward.
"In the first set, I just needed to focus more and trust my game".
"I know that she's a strong opponent". Are you kidding me? "We were ready. We prepared a long time for this match".
"Ekaterina and I have shared great success as a team, and this moment is what we've always dreamed of", Vesnina said. However, for the first time, Stephens wobbled slightly, losing her serve when serving for victory, and the pressure was back on as Keys held for 5-4; however, there was no mistake the second time around, with the tenth seed safely reaching the final.
The pair, inseparable off-court, will clash at the highest level for the first time since Stephens thrashed Keys in the US Open final last September. To have two Americans in the semi-finals of the French Open, I think, is pretty incredible. "So to be here from there, I think is rewarding, because those times were not easy".
"That's how ended up in tie-break". Kasatkina also possesses a fine backhand drop shot, which she disguises well.
With very little to separate US Open finalist Madison Keys and the only unseeded player left in the draw, Yulia Putintseva, the scene was set for either history to be made, or achievements to be unlocked one way or another.
"Honestly", Keys said, "the (U.S.) Open feels like it was 12 years ago, at this point". I obviously rely on what I learned there and how to manage my emotions and manage the moment.
"It feels completely different here".
At the start neither were giving an inch before perhaps a more aggressive state of mind from Putintseva gave her the edge to take a solitary break point to take the lead. Daria Kasatkina, meanwhile, has gone from strength to strength this season as she looks to breakthrough to take her place amongst the elite players in the game.
Twice the runner-up in Paris, Halep has qualified for the final by defeating 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza 6-1, 6-4.
