The focus will be on the women's draw Friday at the U.S. Open, as the four final combatants in the draw — Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Sara Errani and Victoria Azarenka — battle for spots in the U.S. Open final.
Williams, seeded fourth, will take on the No. 10 Errani, who had not advanced past the third round at the U.S. Open in singles before this year. No. 3 Sharapova, who survived a three-set thriller with Marion Bartoli to reach the semifinals, will take on Azarenka, whose best showing at Flushing Meadow was a fourth round exit in 2007 before this year.
The top-seeded Azarenka outlasted No. 7 Samantha Stosur in three sets to reach the semifinal, defeating Stosur in a third-set tiebreaker, 7-5.
A champion will be crowned in men's doubles on Friday at Arthur Ashe Stadium, as No. 5 Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek take on the American brotherly duo of No. 2 Bob and Mike Bryan.
