U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens brushed aside Russian Daria Kasatkina in the French Open quarterfinals Tuesday to set up a repeat of last year's Flushing Meadows final with fellow American and good friend Madison Keys.The two players traded breaks early in the match, before Stephens produced some ferocious hitting at the end of a marathon eighth game to give herself the chance to serve for the opening set.The 14th-seeded Kasatkina kicked off the second set with a solid hold of serve, but Stephens broke in the third game with a venomous cross-court forehand and eased to victory after just an hour and 10 minutes of play.
