Williams, 37, misses out on returning to the US Open final 15 years after her last, and the two-time champion will end 2017 without adding another major title despite reaching two finals and a semi-final. The only time in her career she has reached that many major finals in a season was 2002 (lost all three).

If she wins, it will be the second time Stephens has beaten a Williams sister.

After making it to the final of the Australian Open and Wimbledon this year, she'll try to break through at the home slam. She was serving at 30-all and came up with a dazzling passing shot down the line and went on to tie the set at 5.

Keys has convincingly beaten fellow American Coco Vanderweghe in straight sets, 6-1 6-2. The 24-year-old Stephens had other plans, however, as a look of fire arose in her eyes.

She was ranked down at 934 only a month ago, and said: 'I have no words to describe what I'm feeling, what it took to get here, just the journey I've been on, I have no words. Obviously I didn't play my best tennis today and was disappointed, but Sloane being the great friend that she is was very supportive. Stephens took the first set in just 32 minutes against Keys, the higher ranked of the pair. I don't know how I did it.

Williams's level lifted as she stormed through the second set, her power helping her level the match.
