US Open: 3 semi-finalist spots for grabs in women's singles
Only Azarenka has reached the last four of the US Open and three more players are yet to reach the stage. Later by the end of day's play, one should know all the four semi-finalists, provided the rain gods don't decide to spoil the party.

VICTORIA AZARENKA has become the first women's player to reach the semi-finals of the ongoing US Open after defeating Sam Stosur in the only quarter-finals that has been completed so far. It was a well fought game, where both the players showed their class. The match stretched to three sets, with score line reading 6-1, 4-6 and 7-6.

Azarenka would meet the winner of the match between Maria Sharapova and M. Bartoli, which was set to be decided by now, but their match got suspended due to rain, according to Reuters. The score between Bartoli and Sharapova read 4-0 in the first set when the players left the court. So Azarenka's opponent is not known as of now, but, by the end of day's play, the results would be out and her opponent would be known. With the form Azarenka is in, she should not mind playing either of them.

Another big match that is being eagerly awaited is Serena Willaims Vs Ana Ivanovic clash, which is set for today at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Williams looks in red hot form as she has not dropped a single set in the championship. In fact, she has been demolishing players in quick time. She is seeded fourth in the competition. Ivanovic, seeded 12th has only lost a single set, which makes the quarterfinal game between the two even more interesting.

For yet another semi-finals spot, Sara Errani would take on Roberta Vinci. They might be unknown to many, but have looked in great touch throughout the tournament, hence they have managed to reach the last 16 in spite of a tough fixture.The winner of this match will face either Serena or Ivanovic in the semi-finals. Tennis fans would love to see all the above mentioned players in action, so they will keep their fingers crossed so that rain gods don't visit the last Grand slam of the season.
