US Open: Madison Keys into quarters

US Open: Madison Keys into quarters”

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.

On Monday night, Keys' competitive streak helped her pull off an upset against No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina at the US Open, advancing 15th-seeded Keys to the quarterfinals.

Andrey Rublev beat No. 9 seed David Goffin 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-3 to become, at 19, the youngest male U.S. Open quarterfinalist since Andy Roddick reached the round in 2001.

"It's definitely the first strike kind of tennis, I think is the easiest way to simplify it", said Vandeweghe.

The last time the Americans were this prolific, in 2002, the fabulous five were Venus, Serena, Davenport, Jennifer Capriati and Monica Seles. Davenport now coaches Keys.

1-6 6-4 against fourth seed Svitolina at Flushing Meadows.

The U.S. Open runner-up previous year, Pliskova advanced to face either No. 20 CoCo Vandeweghe or unseeded Lucie Safarova.

Not only will this be the first US Open quarterfinal for Keys, but she'll be joining three other American women in the final 8 - Venus Williams, Sloane Stephens and CoCo Vandeweghe.

"It means the world to me to make the quarterfinals", Keys said. "Yeah, it was a really rough start to my year". This is just unbelievable. I'm really proud of myself for digging deep and figuring that out tonight'. My energy dropped. Once I got broken in the third, I just kept telling myself, Just try to figure it out, just get as many balls in as you can.

"I was lucky that I had an wonderful crowd and atmosphere".

Vandeweghe will face off with Pliskova in the next round. I think it's just really exciting. "If I'm hitting my shots, I'm definitely doing a lot better job in the score line than she is and vice versa. So I think it's pretty much as simple as that". Then on Wednesday, Keys takes on 418th-ranked qualifier Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, while Vandeweghe looks to upend top-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic. After claiming the first set via tiebreak, Keys was overpowered by Svitolina in the second set. After playing through debilitating pain through most of the year, she underwent a pair of wrist surgeries before coming back to win the title at Stanford.

Pliskova raced to a 4-0 lead in the fourth-round match and closed the set in just 26 minutes after Brady double-faulted on set point.

David: Pliskova has resembled a dead person walking, laboring to victory over Nicole Gibbs and Zhang in the last two rounds. At the four Grand Slam tournaments - the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open - men and women are paid equally.

Pliskova remained undefeated against Americans this year. Yet the fiery baseliner appears to have mastered both - and her sometimes-combustible temperament - surviving a series of marathon matches before seeing off Safarova, a former top-five player who had won their three most recent meetings.
