LATEST: Sloane Stephens has advanced to the French Open final for the first time, beating Rock Island native Madison Keys 6-4, 6-4 this morning in an all-American semifinal on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The 10th-seeded Stephens will bid for her second major title when she takes on top-seeded Simona Halep of Romania in Saturday's final.

Stephens lost her serve for the first time against Keys when serving for the match at 5-2.
