(Repeats with no changes to text)

NEW YORK, Sept 9 (Reuters) - A look at the form and records of American Madison Keys and compatriot Sloane Stephens ahead of Saturday’s U.S. Open final (prefix number denotes seeding):

15-Madison Keys

Keys, armed with one of the most powerful forehands on the tour, dropped just three games to knock out compatriot CoCo Vandeweghe in the semi-finals.

The 22-year-old, who missed the first two months of the season with a wrist injury, has peaked at the right time after lifting the title in Stanford last month.

Sloane Stephens

Stephens, who is returning from a long-term foot injury, has continued her remarkable revival at the U.S. Open after reaching the semi-finals in Toronto and Cincinnati last month.

The 24-year-old produced a stellar performance to knock out two-time champion Venus Williams to reach her maiden grand slam final. (Writing by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru)
