Pliskova Stuns Serena In US Open 2016 Semis

#USOpen2016 #Tennis
#FlushingMeadows #NewYork

Just a day ago, we were gushing about #Serena awesome feat of becoming the first player (both men and women included) to hold maximum match wins (308) in #GrandSlam tournaments. She was looking in ominous form and blazing past her opponents in style. 

As luck would have it, with all the limelight on her, she decided to show that she is only mortal. Playing #KarolinaPliskova in the #Semifinals of the women's singles draw should have been a cake walk on any other day to enter the finals of yet another grand slam and history in the making.

Not to be. It was #Pliskova who had other plans. And she went about it precisely, catching #Serena offguard in the first set and wrapping it up 6-2 easily.

Serena picked it up in the second set but Pliskova held on to push the game into a tie-breaker.
Serena tried and tried, but Pliskove held her firm. This was her day. She broke Serena and completed the most famous victory of her career.

She will face #Angelique #Kerber of Germany in the finals on Saturday, 10th Sep 2016.

As for Serena, she will take it as on off day and move on.
Greater heights and laurels await her in coming days ... she is the legend!
