NEW YORK, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) — Americans Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys both made their first Grand Slam final at the US Open on Thursday, beating compatriots Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe in respective semifinals.
Stephens, who missed 11 months with a left foot injury before returning in July nike air max 97 undefeated pas cher , edged past the 37-year-old Williams 6-1, 0-6, 7-5, while 15th seed Keys made short work of Vandeweghe 6-1, 6-2 in just 66 minutes.
“I’m honored to be playing at the same time as her,” said Stephens grossiste nike air max 97 pas cher , whose ranking once stood outside the top 900 due to the injury.
“She is one of the greatest players, forceful and elegant, I have everything nice to say about her.”
“I have no words to describe what I’m feeling, what it took to get here,” added Stephens, who also earned back-to-back semifinals in August in Toronto and Cincinnati.
“I have no idea how my ranking came back so fast. If I had known how well I would do nike air max 97 pas cher chine , I could have passed out. I don’t know how I got here, just hard work, that’s it.”
Seven-time Grand Slam champion and ninth seed Williams made 51 unforced errors which costed her the match.
“It was definitely well competed. In the end she won more points than I did and that’s what it added up to,” Williams said.
“Just made so many errors at the end. I wasn’t playing well. Just wasn’t playing well.”
Williams will return to the top five next week for the first time since 2011.
The other semifinal was a different story and a lopsided match.
Vandeweghe seemed totally rusty compared to her opponent. She just hit nine winners and made 22 unforced errors while Keys’ figures were 25 and nine.
“Madison played an unbelievable match. I didn’t really have much to do with anything out there,” the 25-year-old Vandeweghe said.

FUZHOU nike air max 97 pas cher junior , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) — A man was acquitted Friday by the higher people’s court of east China’s Fujian Province, eight years after being wrongly imprisoned for poisoning four people, two of whom died.
The court overturned grocery shop owner Nian Bin’s 2008 conviction for murder, citing insufficient evidence. This is the final ruling after four guilty verdicts and subsequent appeals.
On the evening of July 27, 2006, four people in Pingtan county of Fuzhou nike air max 97 pas cher femme , three of them children, fell ill while having supper. Two of the children died later.
Police believed their neighbor Nian Bin, then 30, was responsible because he was not on good terms with the victims’ family.
The first verdict came in February, 2008, when the Intermediate People’s Court in Fuzhou sentenced Nian to death. Nian appealed nike air max 97 pas cher homme , but his fate did not change until October, 2010, when the Supreme People’s Court reviewed the sentence. It ruled that “the facts are not clear and the evidence is not sufficient” while ordering local courts to rehear the case.p When reversing the verdict, the higher people’s court of Fujian said that the evidence was conflicting and not enough to prove the victims died from rat poison. There was lack of proof where the poison was from, and some doubts could not be explained.
