Keys clinches historic all-American semifinal US Open set

Williams will face No. 13 seed Petra Kvitova and Stephens faces No. 16 seed Anastasija Sevastova on Wednesday.

Keys will play Vandeweghe, who ousted No. 1 seed Karolina Pliskova earlier Wednesday, and Venus Williams takes on Stephens.

Muguruza has eight top 10 wins this year including victories over two reigning number ones, Angelique Kerber at Wimbledon and Pliskova in Cincinnati.

Vandeweghe defeated Lucie Safarova 6-4, 7-6 (7-2) to advance to her third Grand Slam quarterfinals this year, having previously reached the semifinals at the Australian Open and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

"Oh, my God, it feels so good".

The US Open women's singles draw is down to four - and all of them are American. So the fact that I dug deep and I figured things out, you know, I came out with a win means a lot to me.

Williams, who won the US Open in 2000 and 2001, seeks her eighth major title at age 37.

Madison Keys became the fourth American to progress into the quarterfinals of the US Open as the hope for an all-American semifinal still remains.

The last time it happened at any Grand Slam tournament was at Wimbledon in 1985, with Navratilova and Evert joined by Zina Garrison and Kathy Rinaldi.

It is a remarkable achievement for the American women, especially considering Serena Williams isn't among the group, now away from the sport having given birth.

Trump's rhetoric about white supremacists, especially in the wake of violence in Charlottesville, has been far more forgiving . Trump draws less confidence in his ability to make wise decisions about immigration and the use of nuclear weapons (40% each).

Offseason surgery to her left wrist left Keys with questions about this season. She wound up with eight aces, part of a 23-8 in total winners. Keys' previous best result at a Grand Slam came at the 2015 Australian Open, where she advanced to the semifinals.

Top-seeded Rafael Nadal has taken the first set 6-2 from Alexandr Dolgopolov in their fourth-round match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"You will have to ask him how he's been able to do that".

"It's something a little bit odd that we never played here, because we played a lot of times in all the important events around the world", Nadal said in an on-court interview.

Although Vandeweghe's performances at regular WTA Tour events in 2017 have been largely underwhelming, she has frequently impressed on the biggest stages. "I went from being down 5-0 in the second set to kind of just making a lot of balls and being tough". "Really happy with how I was able to close out the match in the fashion that I did and in front of the crowd today". My energy dropped. Once I got broken in the third, I just kept telling myself, Just try to figure it out, just get as many balls in as you can.

Pliskova, then, showed just why she is the current No1, and why she clearly has aspirations to keep it that way.

"Now I can say I was not playing my best tennis this tournament", she said. Unfortunately for her, Keys is pretty locked in and is much more powerful.

"I was there for a few weeks". "But then once I warmed up and everything, I felt better".

Vandeweghe smacked 24 winners, majority coming from her powerful forehand, while rocketing five aces and saving five of her seven break points.
