Petra Kvitova

Muguruza remains ahead in a three-woman fight for world number one after the US Open but can be overtaken by Czech current number one Karolina Pliskova if she makes the final or Ukraine fourth seed Elina Svitolina if she reaches the semi-finals.

Willams defeated Suarez during the match on Sunday in an hour and 50 minutes at Flushing Meadows here, Efe news reported.

After a five-month injury layoff, Petra Kvitova is taking a relaxed approach to the US Open and it paid off on Sunday when the Czech upset pre-tournament favourite Garbine Muguruza to reach the quarter-finals. "I didn't come to the US Open to be number one. that wasn't really my goal".

The Spaniard will take on two-times Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova next.

Muguruza found Kvitova's form astonishing considering what she has been through. Kvitova was 4 for 7 on break points and finished with 24 winners, 42 unforced errors, while Muguruza was 3 for 12 on break points and finished with 7 winners, 25 unforced errors.

Kvitova, who said early in her comeback that she initially she surprised herself with her ability to still hit great shots, said she had now settled into a familiar comfort with her rediscovered abilities.

"I won the first [set], which I think was kind of the key of the match afterwards".

Sharapova looks to back up big win in battle with Babos
This was undoubtedly a crushing loss for Halep, though it is not impossible she could yet end the tournament as the world No. 1. The five-time Grand Slam champion will take on the American wild card Sofia Kenin in her third-round match.

Muguruza still has a chance to claim the No. 1 ranking after this tournament.

It was a terrific performance from the 27-year-old two-time Wimbledon champion and she will now take on American Venus Williams, a two-time victor of the final Grand Slam of the season, after she ousted Carla Suarez Navarro in three sets, winning 6-3 3-6 6-1.

"I'm not going on-site the day off".

"She's one of the biggest hitters and a talented player".

"What she has gone through is unimaginable, unreasonable", Williams said.

"She was playing good, a lot of winners. To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a lovely thing to see". Only Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina can deny the 2016 Roland Garros victor from reaching the top spot for the first time in her career.

"I like it", she said.
