Sloane Stephens cruises to US Open victory over 'best friend' Madison Keys
Il saluto di Max Biaggi al Tennis and Friends 20172017
Please refresh the page and retry. In pure tennis terms, the combination of these two first-time slam finalists - and close friends — had failed to produce much of a contest. Inhibited by nerves, Keys kept skewing her groundstrokes in all directions apart from the one she intended. Stephens, by contrast, looked as natural on the big stage as a Hollywood star. First she consoled Keys — who was weeping uncontrollably - as they stood locked together at the net. And then, as they waited for the trophies to be awarded, she hopped out of her chair and went over to sit beside her opponent, chatting away merrily until Keys began to grin as well. But Sloane being the great friend that she is was very supportive.
Keys lost just three games to fellow US player CoCo Vandeweghe in a dominant semi-final victory last night to book her place in a first ever Grand Slam final. She might have expected to face Venus Williams but the two-time US Open champion was knocked out by Stephens in a back-and-forth match that ended , , It means both finalists are women treading unknown territory, desperate to land their first major title on home soil, but Keys believes the existing relationship between the two will help imbue rather than sour the occasion. As recently as January, both players were unable to play through injury with Stephens having just had foot surgery and Keys recovering from the first of two wrist operations. They both sat at home watching the last all-American Grand Slam final, when the Williams sisters clashed at the Australian Open, texting each other their woes. But Keys insists the injury lay-off, which saw her go under the knife again just three months ago, has given her an extra edge to her game. Play slideshow.

There were a number of closely matched tennis teams in the Friends Schools League this spring, but the boys of Germantown Friends were able to win the championship with a pair of victories in the FSL tournament in the middle of May. The top-seeded Tigers, who had not taken the league title since , defeated number four Moorestown Friends on May 16, then prevailed against runner-up Westtown School, the second seed, on the GFS courts two days later. Since league member Academy of the New Church does not field a tennis team, there were seven regular-season matches for the Tigers within the FSL. Germantown went , and was missing one of its regular singles players when it lost to defending FSL champ George School by a score. In the semifinals against Moorestown, Tigers freshman Henry Ruger maintained his undefeated status at first singles, and the other victories Germantown needed for its decision came in pairs play.
It is an achievement, that this organisation can continue to survive until now, finance its own activities, do not depend on profit-seeking activities, and its members continue to grow. During my tenure, there are 2 tournaments to be held, namely in Malta in and Lithuania However, in the midst of the economic difficulties that are sweeping the world, the more days we feel the more difficult it is to find member countries that are interested in hosting. Until now we are still having trouble finding prospective hosts in the following years. The main complicating factor is the problem of financing. We realise, as a host who is not looking for profit, and less likely to get sponsorship, the risk of loss will be very large. Therefore, I invite every one of us, to promote this organisation that we love, and to participate in tennis tournaments held every year.
