Rafael Nadal into US Open quarterfinals with win over Alexandr Dolgopolov

Rafael Nadal into US Open quarterfinals with win over Alexandr Dolgopolov

KAROLINA PLISKOVA finally played like the world No 1 and proved she could claim her first Grand Slam title in NY.

By the time the pair shook hands, Pliskova had thumped 23 winners, won 92% of points on her first serve and made just nine unforced errors.

Keys, who rallied from a 4-2 deficit in the third set, is in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open for the first time, while Svitolina's chance of obtaining the No. 1 world ranking following this tournament disappeared.

Federer was trying to keep alive his hopes of the long-awaited first match-up at the US Open with Nadal when he brought an 11-0 record against No 33 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber into their night match-up.

"I think I'm playing in quite big waves this tournament so far".

Rafael Nadal has advanced to the US Open quarterfinals with a 6-2 6-4 6-1 routing of Alexandr Dolgopolov. She played like the player no. 1 that it is. You don't even know why, but the game improves so much.

USA blasts deal that removed IS from Lebanon-Syria border
But anger over the transfer deal prompted the US-led coalition to launch airstrikes on Wednesday to block the convoy. Lebanon's Hezbollah has been a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad throughout Syria's six-year war.

After a tight opening couple of games, though, she ran away with it against poor Brady, giving the American no chance to give the home fans something to cheer on Labor Day. I didn't even practice yesterday.

20th seed Coco Vandeweghe became the third American women to reach the quarterfinals at this year's US Open on Monday afternoon, edging past former French Open finalist Lucie Safarova in two tight sets to join Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens in the last eight. "I'm really proud of myself for digging deep and figuring that out tonight". I think she was kind of nervous, and also, with the shadow, I think she just didn't feel well.

It was a different matter in the morning NY sunshine on Monday as qualifier Brady was left utterly demoralised by the class, movement and shot selection of the Czech player, who must reach the final to hang on to her position as the game's top seed. "She came out playing, I felt, like the No 1 player".

She raced to a 4-0 lead and never let Brady get into the match in a much better performance than Saturday, when she struggled past No. 27 Zhang Shuai 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Definitely she can play better than she was playing today. Obviously she has a big serve. When she dropped her serve early in the second set, she immediately broke back against the southpaw Safarova, and reeled off six straight points to capture the tiebreaker. It may be that I have given him the opportunity to play well, said Brady.

"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".

Seven matches later, the Estonian will face either fourth seed Elina Svitolina or Madison Keys in the last eight.
