No. 1 Pliskova, two more Americans make US Open quarters

No. 1 Pliskova, two more Americans make US Open quarters”

Vandeweghe, who is also through to the semi-finals of the mixed doubles with her partner Horia Tecau, said: "Even though we're out here individually it's really a team sport".

"I think it was just good for me to, you know, get a feel for what it's like playing on a big stage, playing on Ashe". The two players had taken part in the final of this event in 2009.

Pliskova joined countrywoman Petra Kvitova in the last eight, following Kvitova's win over Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza. Pliskova is the second No. 1 player that Vandeweghe has taken down this year after her victory over Angelique Kerber at the Australian Open. Svitolina meets No. 15 seed Madison Keys in the nightcap.

Pliskova had been the runner-up in 2016 and her failure to defend those points means that Wimbledon champion Muguruza will take the top ranking for the first time despite the Spaniard losing in the last 16 in NY.

Vandeweghe smacked 24 winners, a lot of them coming from her powerful forehand, while rocketing five aces and saving five of her seven break points.

Businessman Udofia offers Eagles $20000 per goal
Cameroon are the reigning champions of Africa after their triumph over Egypt in the Nations Cup final in Gabon earlier this year. Odion Ighalo , John Mikel Obi , Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho were all on target for Nigeria in their victory.

The match would start badly for the top seed as she fell down an early break in the third game of the match.

The American was then forced to save a set point before taking the opener in a tiebreak.

Incredibly, there was only a single break of serve in the breaker, and it went the way of the World No. 22.

Karolina Pliskova needed just 46 minutes to race into the quarter-finals of the US Open with victory over Jennifer Brady.

CoCo Vandeweghe has won over the crowd at the U.S. Open.

Turkish bodyguards charged in bloody embassy beatdown
Sinan Narin and Eyup Yildirim, two of those indicted who were not a part of the Turkish security detail, were arrested on June 14. The Turkish Embassy claimed the protesters, who were located across the street from the Embassy, were members of a terror group.

An erratic match saw five breaks of serve in both sets, but it was Kanepi who held her serve to reach the quarters in NY for a second time.

Vandeweghe won an astounding 81 percent of points when she got her first serve in, and since she put 64 percent of her first balls in, at an average speed of 105 miles per hour, she was extremely effective on serve. Pliskova has won seven of her last eight matches on hard court. Definitely she can play better than she was playing today.

Brady struggled mightily with her service game, where she was only able to connect on 39% of her first serves compared to Pliskova's 67%.

As of now, there is a chance of an all American final.

Vandeweghe's best performance at a Grand Slam came when she reached the Australian Open semi-finals earlier this year, and she must overcome world number one Karolina Pliskova to reach the last four here in NY. It is a great tournament for American tennis, especially with Serena Williams absent.
