Women’s Final Preview, Sort of

Sloane Stephens' odd 6-1, 0-6, 7-5, victory over Venus Williams and Madison Keys 6-1, 6-2, beatdown of CoCo Vandeweghe guarantees that we'll see a first-time Slam winner at the end of the women's final on Saturday.

And what can we expect to see? Honestly, I have no idea. While some people had Keys as a sleeper pick to go all the way, no one thought Sloane Stephens would put together a streak like this and reach the final. What happens here is anyone's guess.

I'm excited for it, and you should be too. In addition to being an intriguing match-up, it's a great moment for women's tennis and a great moment for U.S. tennis.

And it's obviously a great moment for these two young women. Stephens is 24. Keys is just 22. May this be the first of many big-stage meetings between the two. I wish them both the best.
