Top-ranked Serena Williams had her calendar Grand Slam quest crushed in stunning fashion today as Italy's 43rd-ranked Roberta Vinci delivered a 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 upset shocker to reach the US Open final.

 

In tomorrow's championship match, Vinci will face 26th-ranked compatriot Flavia Pennetta, who upset Romanian second seed Simona Halep 6-1, 6-3 in the other semi-final.

 

Williams was trying to complete the first calendar Slam since Steffi Graf in 1988 and match Graf's Open Era record of 22 career Slam titles.
