Sloane Stephens has emerged the new US Open winner as she played a near-perfect match to beat Madison Keys 6-3 6-0 in an all American final on Saturday.
The slam is Stephens’ maiden grand slam title .
Stephens, who spent a year off the courts because of a foot injury, was never in trouble as her defensive play derailed the 15th-seeded Keys.
In the first all American U.S. Open women’s final since Serena Williams beat her sister Venus in 2002, Stephens made only six unforced errors to frustrate Keys.
She sealed a straightforward win on her third match point when Keys sent yet another shot into the net.
