NEW YORK, Sept 7 (Reuters) - A look at the form and records of American Madison Keys and compatriot CoCo Vandeweghe ahead of their semi-final match at the U.S. Open on Thursday (prefix number denotes seeding):
The world number 16 looked convincing in her quarter-final victory over Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi and will have the momentum going into the clash against CoCo Vandeweghe. Keys beat her fellow American in the final at Stanford.
The 25-year-old displayed plenty of tenacity in her upset of top seed Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals and will look to reach her first grand slam final with a win over her compatriot. She has lost the only two meetings she has had with Keys, both this year.
