Cilic ousted, teen Shapovalov wins at US Open

The Latest: Canadian teen Shapovalov into US Open's 4th Rd

Kvitova, who returned to action in May following a knife attack at her home last December, managed to overcome the third seed at Flushing Meadows to book her place in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2015. In 1954, a year after she had won the Grand Slam, Maureen Connolly had an accident while riding her horse, broke her right leg and never played again.

Pliskova admitted she has been struggling with the pressure of having the number one next to her name but she got off to a good start here and played freely. I love being part of them. She made an improbable return at the French Open, but even now her hand still hasn't fully healed, not to mention the psychological scars after such a harrowing episode. I think that's the biggest thing that I've learned.

Her drug ban notwithstanding, Sharapova remains one of the world's most recognizable athletes and could be set to regain her former corporate standing. On one point won by Sharapova in the second set, she twice tracked down lobs that she got back over the net by hitting the ball left-handed. "There's no doubt that not playing those matches certainly cost me today". Muguruza found Kvitova's form astonishing considering what she has been through. "I did feel like I was thinking a little bit too much and not playing by instinct". His loss means there will be a first-time Grand Slam finalist this year from the bottom half of the draw.

A fourth-round match full of powerful ball-striking and bold serving ended in a memorable victory for Kvitova, who won 7-6, 6-3 to secure a quarter-final meeting on Tuesday with the five-times Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams.

Clarets represented on worldwide duty for both Wales and Republic of Ireland
Valeri Kazaishvili's 34th-minute finish brought the sides level and that's the way it stayed until the finish. After Ireland's goal, they defended as if it was the 90th minute for the remainder of the game.

Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza are among them and try to reach the fourth round by winning Friday.

All three 2017 Grand Slam champs - Serena Williams, Jelena Ostepenko and Garbine Muguruza - are absent from quarterfinals and story after story laments the lack of drama remaining on the women's side of the final Slam of the year. In the key moments, she finds big serves. "She has a great timing and a lot of power, for sure". As she said once: "Respecting my opponent has always been important to me because without an opponent we can't play this attractive game".

"I tried to work hard to play here again". At age 37, Williams-who beat Carla Suarez Navarro in three sets Sunday-has been more consistent in Grand Slams this year than any other woman. She smiled, twirled and exited the arena looking like a player ready to make good on that promise, like a woman exhausted of coming thisclose.

Schwartzman, who eliminated 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic in his previous match, advanced to face No. 12 Pablo Carreno Busta.
