Muguruza destroys Rybarikova to set up Kvitova clash

Muguruza destroys Rybarikova to set up Kvitova clash”

Whatever comes after that, nobody knows, but these routine walks to the court will count as something if not something else. The No. 1 seed will face 19-year-old Russian Andrey Rublev, who defeated David Goffin 7-5, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3. The American prevailed in three sets against Carla Suarez Navarro earlier on Sunday.

Kvitova will turn up under the lights 259 days after something nearly bottomlessly grim. "I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive".

Petra Kvitova was pleased with her recovery from a slow start as she revelled in her fourth-round victory over Garbine Muguruza at the US Open.

Also singing her praises is her next opponent, Venus Williams, having her own miraculous comeback year as well.

But while we're focusing on who isn't here, the most intriguing matchup of the fortnight, one with the potential to deliver the eventual champion to the final rounds, is shaping up Tuesday night on Arthur Ashe Stadium: Venus Williams vs. Petra Kvitova. 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. To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a attractive thing to see.

Williams reiterated that she still has the love. She coped with the immune disorder Sjogren's syndrome, diagnosed in 2011 and known to wreak fatigue.

Kvitova continued to shift up the gears as she broke in the 11th game to lead 6-5, but she failed to serve out for the set as a double fault brought up the lottery of a tie-break.

But she could not sustain enough strong play, and Sevastova reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the second consecutive year. Her 2017 Grand Slams: final (Australian Open), fourth round (at the French, historically her toughest task), final (Wimbledon) and quarterfinal (here).

Nadal drawn to face Federer in US Open semis
And If you miss any of Tuesday's action, the Tennis Channel will carry replays of television coverage throughout the day. It would not be a surprise if the Swiss wins a staggering 20th Grand Slam title in just over two weeks time .

Kvitova has earned the her rivals' respect, none more so than Williams, who is only 1-4 lifetime against the Czech. It's never easy to win a Slam. "You know, it's another life-changing event for me".

The duo could not be separated as they headed to the changeover at 3-3, but a couple of Muguruza errors handed Kvitova three set points, and she took her chance at the first time of asking.

For a while, Kvitova told of understandable new feelings, and not just the surprise of winning the title in Birmingham, England, at the Wimbledon tuneup.

"Especially after everything that happened, I do feel little bit pumped", Kvitova said. I struggled a little bit from the beginning. "I found out what's important and what is not". She remembered, "Every kind of small millimeter made me happy". She had begun practicing with "soft balls from the net" and it had felt "very, very weird", as she put it in France.

"I'm very grateful that I can be part of it again", Kvitova said. "Pretty good performance from her".

"I felt like she was superior today". I'm not thinking like that anymore. "It's much more easier for me to feel more normal than before". "Yeah, you just have to get through it", Sharapova said. It's there, which I'm really, really appreciative for that. It took me a while to find it.

With that, she'll walk out, and in quite some company.
