Vandeweghe continues American success at US Open

Vandeweghe continues American success at US Open

Plsikova will take on another American, Coco Vandeweghe, a 6-4, 7-6 victor Monday over Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic.

"The opponent was not the best today".

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

With her uncle Kiki Vandeweghe - the former NBA All-Star, coach and general manager - having flown in from California to watch courtside at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the 25-year-old Vandeweghe took another big step toward tennis stardom and established more bragging rights in a competitive family tree. "I really wanted to get the chance that I got after that match point".

It was Safarova who got off to the best start in the tiebreak, securing a mini-break in the opening point, though quickly lost it as Vandeweghe began to sense victory.

Nadal hadn't reached the quarterfinals in Flushing Meadows since the last of his two US Open titles in 2013.

Should Pliskova reach the final in NY she will retain the world number one ranking, but a first grand slam title would be even greater reward for the 25-year-old. "Hopefully I'll be on here for the next match as well". "So I think it's pretty much as simple as that".

Lebanon Calls on United Nations to Renew Peacekeepers' Mandate
Secretary General, to work to end the discrimination against Israel in some branches of your organization". Besides Israel and the Palestinian territories, Macron said the trip will include Lebanon and Jordan.

"We both have the plan to play aggressive, but I think she's a little bit, not messy sometimes, but she's just going for her shots".

This time, she raced to a 4-0 lead against an obviously nervous opponent, then won the second set in even more lopsided fashion.

Keys overcame a 4-2 deficit in the third to win the last four games of the match to reach her first US Open quarterfinal.

Nadal turned in his most powerful performance yet at this year's NY tournament to beat Dolgopolov on Monday (NZT Tuesday), and is now just one win away from a potential semifinal showdown with longtime rival Roger Federer. "I have a day off tomorrow again, so I will just prepare for it". Kanepi, who's missed nearly two years of play with plantar fasciitis, is playing her first Grand Slam since the 2015 US Open. It's pretty unbelievable where I am now compared to where I was few months ago.

"I didn't expect this", said Kanepi who is ranked No. 418.

Keys and Vandeweghe are trying to join fellow Americans Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens into the women's quarters.

While Muguruza won't accumulate further points as she was ousted by Petra Kvitova in yesterday's session, the young Ukrainian Svitolina is still a threat, and she may face Pliskova in the semis. She took on one of five American women in the last 16, the most at this stage of any Major since Roland Garros 2003.
