Defending champ Stephens wins quite a point, returns to US Open quarterfinals

The victor of this match faces 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro in the semifinals. Consider this: 22 of her 30 unforced errors came in the first set against Pliskova, who briefly spent time at No. 1 in the WTA rankings and was the runner-up at the US Open in 2016, when she beat Williams in the semifinals.

By the end, Williams compiled a 13-3 edge in aces, and 35-12 in total winners. "She has big spin on the forehand".

A year on, she returned to Flushing Meadows to try and defend that crown, but she fell short in hot conditions against the 28-year-old Latvian.

Thiem, who lost to Nadal in the French Open final but who has beaten the Spaniard three times in 10 previous meetings, struck 74 winners, including 24 with his stylish single-handed backhand, to keep the champion under constant pressure. Until the fifth-set tiebreaker, the first contested so far this tournament, it was truly any man's game to win. She recovered to win in three sets, with her opponent accusing her of acting after the match. "He is young and has plenty of time to win tournaments".

Jamie Murray angrily hurled threw his racket to the ground after he and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares last night missed out on the chance to make the semi-finals of the doubles event.

Gauff's father, Corey, played basketball at Georgia State and her mother, Candi, ran track at Florida State.

"It's going to be a close match, I think", she said.

Sloane Stephens of the United States hits a return during the women's singles quarterfinal match against Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia at the 2018 US Open tennis championships in NY, the United States, Sept. 4, 2018.

Serena Williams applauds work being done by Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid
Amid all of it, Williams said athletes - and people in general - should be grateful for the conversations they've started. The NFL had requested summary judgment by Burbank, which amounted to a request for him to dismiss the case.

Serena will move on to face Anastasija Sevastova, who dominated defending US Open champ Sloane Stephens on Tuesday with a 6-2, 6-3 rout in the quarterfinals.

Five years ago Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova was retired from professional tennis, having bowed out of the sport after a string of persistent and frustrating injuries.

Del Potro saved the only two break points he faced in the entire match in the fourth game of the third set which he wrapped up in another tiebreak.

A month earlier, Nadal had cruised past del Potro in straight sets in the semi-finals at Roland Garros on his way to an 11th title in Paris.

However Sevastova broke to make it 5-3 and then served out for the win.

The 20-year-old Osaka is also the youngest semifinalist at the U.S. Open since Caroline Wozniacki in 2010.

"When you don't play big points well, the match can get away from you". The policy was in place Tuesday through Thursday.
