Kasatkina ousts Williams to reach semi-finals

"I wasn't that aggressive, " Osaka said.

This final was unexpectedly one-sided as Kasatkina failed to display her best tennis, but Osaka put up a flawless display of aggressive tennis and controlled aggression, being consistent and solid at the same time.

Kasatkina will now look ahead to the final and hope she still has some energy after going two hours and 48 minutes against Williams.

"You're like, 'Come on, maybe it's the moment of your life.' To play Venus Williams on center court in the United States, in the semifinals, one of the biggest tournaments, you just put your heart out there". This was the first time both Indian Wells finalists were under age 21 since Serena Williams beat Clijsters in 2001.

'I calmed myself down a little bit more, and I just was more focused on what I have to do, and not thinking that much about the wind and what is going on on court.

Osaka will play the 19th-ranked Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation for the title on Sunday. "I missed the ball a lot and I didn't play what I had to play", said Halep.

Osaka blitzed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 6-2 in the battle of the 20-year-olds for the biggest victory of her short career.

A wide backhand left her down a break after the first two games, and her opponent raced to a 5-2 lead.

With her fourth-round finish at the US Open a year ago, she would begin a run of wins over all four reigning Major champions-French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko, Wimbledon champ Garbine Muguruza, US victor Sloane Stephens, and Australian champion Caroline Wozniacki, plus current No1 Halep.

Kasatkina has yet to play Osaka at a WTA event, but she will have taken special note of the way the 20-year-old Japanese player set about seeing off Halep. She could move to 15th or 16th, and has a shot at the top 10 if she would win the title. She defeated No. 31 Agnieszka Radwanska and No. 5 Karolina Pliskova on her way to the final, dropping just one set in six matches.
