Today’s matches, full schedule and how to watch on TV

Coco Gauff is through to her first US Open final, but only after her semi-final against Karolina Muchova was suspended for more than 45 minutes when a protester glued his feet to the floor in the stands. 

She will meet Aryna Sabalenka, who came from a set and a break down to deny the US Open crowd an all-American final.

The second seed, who will rise to world No 1 on Monday, lost the first set to love against Madison Keys but hit back to win 0-6, 7-6, 7-6 and book her place in the final.
