Garbine Muguruza has been crowned as the new world No. 1 after Coco Vandeweghe dumped Karolina Pliskova out of the US Open 7-6 (7-4) 6-3.

"It's definitely the first-strike kind of tennis, I think is the easiest way to simplify it", said Vandeweghe of facing the No. 1 player. The Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, the champion in 2009 at Flushing Meadows, has, meanwhile, saved two match points and erased a late two innings to beat Austrian Dominic Thiem 1-6, 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4.

To get to the quarterfinals, Pliskova won 92 percent of her first serves and recorded 23 winners against Brady.

World No 1 Rafael Nadal dispatched Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-2 6-4 6-1 with a powerful display to reach the US Open quarterfinals in just one hour 41 minutes this morning.

An erratic match saw five breaks of serve in both sets, but it was Kanepi who held her serve to reach the quarters in NY for a second time.

Pliskova looked frustrated and struggled to find her rhythm throughout the match, serving just two aces while committing three double faults and 21 unforced errors.

This time, she raced to a 4-0 lead against an obviously nervous opponent, then won the second set in even more lopsided fashion.

Elliott will play Week 1
However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell determined his actions constituted a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Not only did Dickerson add he believed Elliott wasn't guilty, but that if he was, six games was too harsh of a suspension.


The typically reserved 25-year-old even saw her temper boil over during her match on Wednesday when she threw her racquet violently to the court in disgust after hitting a forehand long to hand the first set to Vandeweghe.

It was by far the day's most enthralling match, with spectators' roars heard all the way across the grounds at Arthur Ashe Stadium, where Federer was beating No. 33 Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-2, 7-5.

When Vandeweghe clinched the match, she dropped to her knees as the crowd roared yet again.

The No. 24 seed del Potro faces sixth-seeded Dominic Thiem, with the victor getting Federer if the five-time champion can improve his 31-1 record in night matches at Arthur Ashe Stadium. We have to admire Serena and Venus, Lindsay (Davenport), Jennifer (Capriati). "I couldn't wish for anything better".

"I can play much better than I was playing today. Let's make it four for four".

She dispatched 23rd seed Barbora Strycova 6-1, 6-1 in the second round, and her victory over Monica Niculescu has seen her make the round of 16 twice in Grand Slams this year, having also done so at the Australian Open.

Pliskova held the top seeding for eight weeks, but she will be replaced by the defending Wimbledon champion Muguruza. Venus Williams will move into second place if she wins the title.
