Roberta Vinci handed Serena her first Grand Slam singles loss of the season in the semifinals. Her trip through the draw this year has been marked by poise and composure, even though the stakes are nearly as high. On the line: a 23rd Grand Slam singles title, which would break the Open era record she shares with Steffi Graf, and the No. 1 ranking, something she has held for 186 consecutive weeks.Case for Pliskova: Right now, she has some absurdd momentum working for her. Nike Air Max Zero Womens White.

The 26-year-old Dane owns a posh apartment here and ran the New York City Marathon two years ago (in a sporty 3 hours, 26 minutes). She has also reached two US Open finals, in 2014 and 2009 -- the only times shes ever reached a major final.Notable stat: Wozniacki has been to at least the semifinals here four different times, while Kerber has only done it once, in 2011.Prediction: Kerber in three. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
