US Open 2017: Sloane Stephens beats Madison Keys to win title

I told her that I wished it could have been a draw. Keys, who was playing with her right thigh heavily strapped, said: I obviously didn't play my best tennis and Sloane was very supportive.

Keys, 22, had played superbly to win her semi-final against Coco Vandeweghe, making 24 winners to just nine errors and moving to the top of the aces chart with a display of controlled power.

Stephens had come through a far more tense encounter against Venus Williams, with her athletic defensive skills all the more remarkable as her foot had been in a protective boot as recently as May.

It was her calm consistency that prevailed in a final that became something of a horror show for Keys. Over the course of 61 minutes, she made 30 unforced errors to just six from the rock-solid Stephens. After the first four games went quickly with serve, Keys was broken when a forehand flew long, and a similar error gave up the set after half an hour.

Keys offered up another opportunity early in the second with a woeful backhand volley, and Stephens grabbed her chance with a rasping backhand winner followed by a cross-court forehand.

The final appeared as good as over when Keys double-faulted to fall down, and even when she finally earned break points - three of them at after 47 minutes - Stephens would not buckle. The third of them was seen off with a dart to the net and a confident forehand volley, leaving Stephens to serve for the match. There was a final flurry of resistance from Keys but she could only find the net on match point number three, as Stephens reeled off eight games in a row to clinch her first major title.

Two close friends, both in tears, ended up sitting side by side on the same side of the net as they awaited the presentation ceremony.

The match itself had been an anti-climax: Stephens simply played with too much skill, accuracy and composure for Keys, who did not take nearly as well to her maiden Grand Slam final and seemed hindered by a leg injury. For three consecutive years, Stephens was the youngest player in first the top , then the top 50 and ultimately the top There then came a period of struggle followed by foot surgery and now a US Open title. The next chapter is hard to predict, but she will next week return to the world's top 20 and forever be viewed in a different light by her fellow professionals.
