The duo beat beat their unseeded opponents Anastasia Rodionova of Australia and Oliver Marach Austria in straight sets 6-1, 7-6.

They'll likely face top seeds Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis in the final.

It'll be Venus' first time playing on Arthur Ashe stadium and caps off what has already been a successful year for the 29-year-old.

Venus and his American partner, Ryan Harrison, won the French Open men's doubles title earlier this year at Rolland Garros as well as an ATP Tour 250 event in Portugal.

The final will be played tomorrow morning.
