US Open: Nervy Petra Kvitova stuns Garbine Muguruza to reach quarters

US Open: Nervy Petra Kvitova stuns Garbine Muguruza to reach quarters

Muguruza won the title in Cincinnati before the U.S. Open and is on an eight-match winning streak.

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

In the second set, 2017 Wimbledon champion Muguruza seemed as though she could not recover from the tough tiebreak. Garcia finally grabbed a game to begin the second set, which was more competitive until Kvitova broke for a 4-3 edge.

Sister Venus Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion and new aunt, confirmed reports of the birth before walking onto the court for her third-round match against Greece's 95th-ranked Maria Sakkari. "It was the kind of moment that I dream of to come and play again on the big stages", she said.

A new edition of The Tennis Podcast is available to download after play every day during the US Open.

The 28th-seeded South African eliminated unseeded Paolo Lorenzi of Italy 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-4 on Sunday night. Even with the loss, Muguruza could be No. 1 if the other players lose before the final.

Anderson improved to 2-9 in fourth-rounders at majors. The 37-year-old Williams, who won the title in 2000 and 2001, got to the quarterfinals by beating Carla Suarez Navarro 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

Six months was touted as the earliest return date for the former world number two but she defied all the odds by returning to action at the French Open in May.

But in NY, a loss would mean a much longer lens to view her next Slam opportunity, the Aussie Open, which is five months away.




Kvitova's game is as natural as she is, as unaffected as this woman who reduced Li Na to tears with her eloquence at the Chinese player's retirement ceremony and has won the WTA sportsmanship award five times.

On Sunday, Muguruza jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the opening set and earned three break points for a chance to go up 5-1. Last year's champion, Angelique Kerber, lost in the first round.

RAFAEL NADAL is into the lasteight in NY for the first time since 2013 after beating Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-2, 6-4, 6-1. But yet, she looked sharp throughout the week and therefore earned a well-deserved spot in the quarterfinals.

Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov is the youngest man to reach the U.S. Open's fourth round since Michael Chang was 17 in 1989. "I just need to have everything together to click, but I'm glad it's still there".

Sevastova will play unseeded American Sloane Stephens next.

She utilized the same type of aggressive play that has been a foil for the great Serena Williams in the past, and she found her game, just in time for the last grand slam tournament of the year. She hasn't reached three Slam finals in a year since 2002. I was not really enjoying myself the first three matches.

The Czech star reached the quarter-finals in NY for the second time in three years after a 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 win over third seed Muguruza on Sunday.

The only past Grand Slam champion in the lower half of the U.S. Open's men's draw is in trouble. Carreno Busta will face either No. 16 Lucas Pouille or No. 29 Diego Schwartzman next. "They're not going to give you any matches".
