US Open, final, hard 9 September 2017, 21:00.
The final is set to begin at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows. For the first time since Lindsay Davenport in 1998, an American woman not named Venus or Serena Williams will win the U.S. Open title.
So who will take home the title? Below, SI’s tennis experts make their pick and predictions for the 2017 U.S. Open women’s final.
Sloane Stephens could not walk at all back in January after the foot surgery and US Open is only her fifth tournament of the season. The injury caused the drop to the 934th position in the WTA rankings, but it is all less important at the moment since Sloane will have the chance to enjoy her first ever grand slam final after a thrilling third-set performance against much more popular 37-year-old six-time grand slam champion Venus Williams.
Interestingly, the winner of the outcome will be the first American player with the surname different to Williams to win a major title since Jennifer Capriati in 2002. However, Stephens will have a massive task in the last match of the tournament as Madison Keys showed a spectacular tennis hitting 24 winners to nine unforced errors in the drubbing of her countrywoman Coco Vandeweghe in the second semifinal at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
