Home favourite Coco Gauff booked her place in the US Open women’s final after a thrilling battle against Karolina Muchova in a match interrupted by protestors.
The semi-final was delayed by 49 minutes, with one of the protestors glueing their feet to the surface of Arthur Ashe court, with all four taken into custody by the New York Police Department. Gauff said she was not upset at the protest, as it was done in a peaceful manner.
In the final, Gauff will take on Aryna Sabalenka, who had to dig in to beat Madison Keys in three sets, preventing what would have been a historic all-American final.
