US Open day 11: Victoria Azarenka to face Naomi Osaka in final

The story of the 11th day of action at Flushing Meadows.

Victoria Azarenka and Naomi Osaka came out on top of two tremendous women's semi-finals at the US Open.

Azarenka ended Serena Williams' hopes of a 24th grand slam singles title with a 1-6 6-3 6-3 victory while Osaka defeated Jennifer Brady 7-6 (1) 3-6 6-3.

When Azarenka got her backhand firing, the match turned. She hit a number of winners, none more important than the back-to-back pair that earned her a break for 3-2 in the second set and changed the match.

At the double

The men's doubles concluded on Thursday with Croatia's Mate Pavic and Bruno Soares of Brazil winning the title with a 7-5 6-3 victory over Wesley Koolhof and Nikola Mektic.

It was a first US Open title for Pavic, while Soares lifted the trophy in New York alongside Jamie Murray four years ago.
