Pliskova Into US Open Quarterfinals After Rout of American Brady

CoCo Vandeweghe Into The Quarters After Concentrating On Fitness This Year

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.

The top seed, who needs to win her quarterfinal against either Lucie Safarova or CoCo Vandeweghe to have a chance of retaining her No.1 ranking, was ruthless in speeding through a second set bagel, breaking Brady three times - the final time denying the American from two game points down to seal a dominant display.

Rafael Nadal has advanced to the US Open quarterfinals with a 6-2 6-4 6-1 routing of Alexandr Dolgopolov.

To get to the quarterfinals, Pliskova won 92 percent of her first serves and recorded 23 winners against Brady. But I just felt much better. "The thing I'm most impressed by is her determination to play one point at a time".

On paper, Pliskova's first hurdle to reach the quarter-finals was significantly easier than Svitolina's. "I'm really proud of myself for digging deep".

Pliskova remained undefeated against Americans this year. "Definitely she can play better than she was playing today", Pliskova said. I didn't even practice yesterday. 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.

She made sure she wouldn't have to play from behind again.

CoCo Vandeweghe Into The Quarters After Concentrating On Fitness This Year

Pending Monday night and Madison Keys's match with No. 4 Elina Svitolina, at least three American women and one American man are still being allowed to continue playing based on having breached a 2010s American tradition and failing to lose so far. I didn't play my best.

Pliskova had lost to Angelique Kerber in the final at Flushing Meadows previous year and it should be sure to play again in the final to retain the first rank in the women classification.

"Well, obviously I think it's the speed of the shots, but otherwise, I would not really put me and her together". "It's a bit overwhelming, going out there for the first time, playing on Ashe, playing the number-one player in the world".

This would not be a problem for her if she continues playing as she did during his demonstration nearly flawless in the fourth round, not looking like the player who nearly suffered elimination in the previous round.

On the side of the pane, junior, Canadian and fifth-seeded Carson Branstine won his match for the first round 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the face of the Polish Maja Chwalinska, while his compatriot Layne Sleeth, was beaten 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 by the Colombian Emiliana Arango.

And Keys joins Sloane Stephens, Venus Williams and Vandeweghe in the quarterfinals.
