Pliskova upsets sisters Williams

Williams lost 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) by big-serving Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic on Thursday night.

This was the first major semifinal for Pliskova, who beat the 34-year-old American’s older sister Venus in the fourth round after staving off a match point.

on Day Eleven of the 2016 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 8, 2016 in the Queens borough of New York City.

The 10th-seeded Pliskova, who will play No. 2 Angelique Kerber of Germany for the title on Saturday, began her on-court interview by blurting out that she couldn’t believe she’d eliminated Williams to earn a spot in her first major final. Then Pliskova said: “I mean, actually, I do believe it. I always knew I have a chance to beat anyone if I’m playing my game.” “One more step to go,” she said.

Kerber reached her third Grand Slam final of the season — and of her career — by beating two-time U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-3.
