Tennis fans will witness all the melanin on the courts in Flushing, New York on Thursday when Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens two compete against one other during the U.S. Open semifinals.

On Tuesday, 24-year-old Stephens became the only other black woman aside from Venus and her equally talented younger sister Serena Williams to advance to the semifinals. Serena’s fierce serves are absent from this year’s competition as the 23-time Grand Slam title holder recently gave birth to her first child. Venus was able to strut her way into Thursday’s quarterfinals after beating Petra Kvitova.

When will the magic end, you ask? Neva.
