Garbine Muguruza defeated Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 and continue her best US Open run.

"I was happy about this match because she wasn't seeded here, but obviously, she knows how to play", the ninth-seeded Williams said of Suárez Navarro.

"I tried to work really hard to play here again". "I didn't come to the US Open to be number one. that wasn't really my goal". I will try my best. I mean, she has a big serve, big server of course.

Wildcard Sharapova, who played in her first major since a 15-month doping ban, said there were a lot of positives in her defeat by Sevastova. You can just dream about it, but when you there, it's just different. "That's what I missed", she said. That was a really big game from my side at 6-5.

But the Czech battled her way back, saving a break point for 1-5 with a backhand on the baseline and fighting to take the first set 7-6 (3) in 64 minutes. "Luckily I find it in a Grand Slam, which is nice".

- South Africa's Kevin Anderson, the men's 28th seed, beat Italian Paolo Lorenzi 6-4 6-4 6-7 (4) 6-4.

This is the second time in three years that the 37-year-old Williams - the oldest woman in the bracket - has advanced to the quarterfinals at the US Open.




Garbine Muguruza, of Spain, serves against Petra Kvitova, of the Czech Republic, during the fourth round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017. Kvitova especially dominated on the forehand, hitting 12 such winners to just two for Muguruza.

Meanwhile, Sloane Stephens of the United States reached the last eight at the Flushing Meadows for the first time by upsetting Julia Goerges 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

- Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta won a hard-fought match against Canada's Denis Shapovalov, beating the 18-year-old 7-6 (2) 7-6 (4) 7-6 (3) to reach the quarter-finals.

The 12th-seeded Spaniard has only once been as far as the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament, at the French Open in June.

Williams played the unseeded Carla Suárez Navarro, a petite, single-handed Spaniard of craft and variety but without the shot-making power-game of the 6ft 1in American.

Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza has set up a fascinating last-16 US Open tie with two-time Grand Slam victor Petra Kvitova after downing Magdalena Rybarikova.
