In the semi-final round played on Saturday, Madison Keys improved her already strong H2H record over Garbiñe Muguruza to 3-0 with a decisive 6-3, 6-2 victory.

Spanish top seed Muguruza needed just 62 minutes to get past the fifth-seeded Croatian, breaking Konjuh's serve five times and never trailing in their first career meeting.

Runner-up to Serena Williams in 2012, Vandeweghe has not dropped a set en route to the final.

Muguruza went on to acknowledge that she does have some special drive that helps her in the grand slam tournaments, somethings her critics have been saying since her French Open win. "Ana is such a powerful player and super young, I knew I had to be concentrated".

"On her serve, you have to see where she's tossing and kind of guess a little bit, just because it's coming so fast", said Bellis, who couldn't return blistering back-to-back serves of 117 and 116 miles per hour to close out the match. "I'm really happy about it, overall". "I haven't had many matches, so I feel like I'm still trying to find that rhythm again".

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is relishing the prospect of a jam-packed North American schedule, starting this week in Stanford, California.

Aside from a distinct height advantage (6-foot-1 to 5-7) and an edge in experience (25 years old to Bellis' 18), Vandeweghe defines "easy power" as well as anyone in the women's game.

Keys will play Coco Vandeweghe in Sunday's final after the American's straight sets victory over compatriot Catherine Bellis.

"I entered both, so why not?" said Vandeweghe, who felt she came out sluggish in doubles on Saturday, but credited partner Abigail Spears for stepping up in the 6-3, 6-2 triumph in the semifinals.
