US Open: Kvitova topples Muguruza

  • Sharapova ousted at US Open while Venus Kvitova advance

Zverev, a left-hander, sought treatment from a trainer for his left shoulder during the match.

Grand Slams are also where a player's mental strength is brought under serious scrutiny.

Muguruza, the reigning Wimbledon champion, jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the opening set and earned three break points for a chance to go up 5-1.

"I worked hard to come back and be here", Kvitova said.

Now the tough woman is in the quarter-finals of the US Open.

The teenager had a straight sets victory - 7-6, 6-4 - against Sangeet Sridhar overnight. Even with the loss, Muguruza could be No. 1 if the other players lose before the final.

Schwartzman is into the fourth round at a major for the first time.

At the age of 37, Williams is having her most consistent season at grand slam level for 15 years. Kvitova has a greater appreciation for the tour lifestyle after an injury that put her career at risk.

Petra Kvitova came to NY with no expectations.

Muguruza eased into an early 4-1 lead and had three break points for 5-1, but Kvitova held firm and clenched her fist after a forehand victor kept her in touch.

Not since 17-year-old Michael Chang 28 years ago had a younger player cracked the fourth round in NY. She served for the first set at 6-5, got broken, was down 0-2 in the tie-breaker and yet stole it.

Maria Sharapova has been knocked out of the U-S Open. "I just knew it would be about a few points".

Sevastova will play unseeded American Sloane Stephens next.

This is the most significant victory for Kvitova since she returned to action after needing surgery on her racket-holding hand for cuts from a knife-wielding intruder at her home in the Czech Republic in December. "She played the final of the Wimbledon". Sharapova's gone. Halep's out. Luckily I found it in a grand slam.

Cilic won the 2014 title at Flushing Meadows. Next for Williams will be a showdown against No. 13 Petra Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon victor, who eliminated reigning Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza 7-6 (3), 6-3 on Sunday night.

The only past Grand Slam champion in the lower half of the U.S. Open's men's draw is in trouble.

Now she is into the second week at a major for the first time since the 2015 French Open.

Kvitova never faced a break point Friday and raced through the first set in 26 minutes.

Carreno Busta compiled an impressive disparity of 32 winners to only 13 unforced errors Friday.

Shapovalov is trying to become the youngest US men's quarterfinalist since Andre Agassi in 1988.

"Who comes back from a drugs sentence, performance enhancing drugs and then all of a sudden gets to play every single match on center court?"

No. 17 seed Sam Querrey, the only American left, faces No. 23 seed Mischa Zverev at night.

Despite her unfavorable record against Kvitova, Williams will surely appreciate her opponent's ejection of Muguruza, who convincingly beat Williams in July's Wimbledon final and who looked indomitable prior to Sunday.
