Kvitova downs Muguruza to reach quarter-finals

Kvitova downs Muguruza to reach quarter-finals

Former U.S. Open champions Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova play their fourth-round matches, along with a number of men who have a wide-open road to their first final.

"(The injury) played a quite significant part, and just being injured and not being able to keep that good form", Cilic said.

Their most recent match, a third-round encounter at Wimbledon in 2014 that Kvitova won, 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5, is considered one of the best women's matches of the past decade.

Ninth seeded Williams, a twice US Open champion and a crowd favourite for nearly two decades, takes on Spanish veteran Carla Suarez Navarro in the final women's match on the main showcourt. "I'm not sure where she (Wozniacki) is", shot back Sharapova, adding she would be happy to play in parking lot if that is where she was scheduled.

Baby news from Florida turned heads at the year's final Grand Slam event as Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, gave birth to the child she was pregnant with when she won the Australian Open in January. I mean, we always had tough battles.

"What she has gone through is unimaginable, unreasonable", Williams said. So I don't feel she has changed.

It is so incredible for Petra Kvitova to reach this quarterfinal less than a year after she was attacked with a knife in her own home and had to undergo surgery on her dominant left hand as a result.

Muguruza could become world number one for the first time, unless current number one Karolina Pliskova makes the final or fourth seed Elina Svitolina reaches the semi-finals.

The 27-year old Czech, who is playing her eighth tournament since missing five months of action after being stabbed in the hand, made it into the fourth round with 6-0, 6-4 win over French 18th seed Caroline Garcia. "I know having these moments it's even better than before".

- Unseeded American Sloane Stephens reached the quarter-finals for the first time after beating women's 30th seed Julia Goerges of Germany 6-3 3-6 6-1.

The night feature on Ashe pits five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova against 139th-ranked USA teen wildcard Sofia Kenin. Neither of them has been great in NY, with Kvitova reaching the quarterfinals once, and this being Muguruza's first 4th Round.
