The game of tennis is slowly changing and starting to look more familiar. The haters will hate, but we’re happy as hell yet another brown sis will be crowned the US Open Champ this year.   Two in particular are solidifying their place as the faces of the "next era" of women's tennis, and they're snatching wigs in what is historically known as a “white” sport.

Last night, 24-year-old Sloane Stephens beat 37-year-old Venus Williams to advance to the US Open Finals, 6-1, 0-6, 7-5.  That third set, in case you didn't see it, was one for the books.

 

After defeating the 7-time Grand Slam champion at New York’s Arthur Ashe Stadium (where she's in the Open for the very first time), she said, “If someone told me I’d reach two semis and a grand-slam final, I would’ve passed out.”

This is going to be her first major final game. Nice!

It was a close game, but Sloane came out as the winner and Venus was ever so gracious after the loss.  Sloane was equaly gracious while talking about her opponent.  We love the love!

 

After Sloane's win...

22-year-old Madison Keys hit the court against fellow American Coco Vandeweghe, and she came out victorious as well – 6-1, 6-2.

It was the first time since 2002 four American women made it to the semi-finals.
