Rafael Nadal into US Open quarterfinals with win over Alexandr Dolgopolov

Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic shakes hands with Nicole Gibbs of the United

She had lost the first round and had to fight off a match ball in the second before making a rally to defeat Zhang Shuai 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.

Karolina Pliskova of Czech Republic returns a shot to CoCo Vandeweghe of the United States on day ten of the U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

"The opponent was not the best today".

The one-time world number 15 has struggled with injuries in recent years, and is playing in her first Grand Slam proper since 2015. "I just don't care about this", she said.

"That's nothing change on my game today, so I was feeling great". Brady would hold serve in that fifth game, but Pliskova would rattle off the next eight games after that to complete the rout and advance to the final eight.

She will face the victor of the match between No. 20 CoCo Vandeweghe and Lucie Safarova, who met later Monday afternoon.

The No. 1 seed is back into the quarters in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2013, when he won his second of two U.S. Open titles. But she left five more break points on the table, and for a player with highly praised strokes, she only hit 13 winners off the ground. "They definitely helped me pull through in that third set". "So I think it's pretty much as simple as that". Vandeweghe is slowly starting to tap into her potential at 25 years old, and she's going to be very tough to beat if she can keep her unforced error total under 20, like she did in her last match.

This is easily the best American women's performance at this event since 2002, when five of the top eight were US players.

I have to prepare.

Keys next will face the surprise of the tournament, 32-year-old Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over 20-year-old Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.

The Spaniard fell in the fourth round to Petra Kvitova but after a fine summer of results - including her maiden Wimbledon title - she has now risen to the top of the rankings for the first time. It may be that I have given him the opportunity to play well, said Brady. "I hoped to qualify and keep going, see what happened with my tennis".

"I was there for a few weeks".

Vandeweghe's victory means that the US Open will possibly have an all-American semifinal lineup for the first time since 1981 if Madison Keys can overcome Estonia's Kaia Kanepi later on Wednesday.

One of the biggest stories prior to the US Open was the race for the number one spot in the WTA rankings. The loss eliminates Svitolina in the chase for No. 1.
