CoCo Vandeweghe topples No. 1 in American women statement

World number one Karolina Pliskova (pictured left) entered Monday's fourth-round showdown with American Jennifer Brady having lost the first set in each of her previous two matches at the U.S. Open.

"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.

Until this year Vandeweghe had never gone beyond the second round at Flushing Meadows, but ever since bringing Pat Cash, the former Wimbledon champion, into her coaching entourage her game has flourished.

On a royal tour of Poland in July 2017, Kate joked about having a third - after being given a present designed for newborns. They added that she is suffering from severe morning sickness, as she did with her previous pregnancies.

Vandeweghe was soon 3-1 up in the first set, but Pliskova won four of the next five games as a tie-break loomed.

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. It was a disappointing result for the top seed who was not only aiming to retain her number one ranking, but also win her first grand slam title. They have split their two matches on hard court. The Czech Republic native is in the quarterfinals for the second consecutive year. Despite not winning too many tournaments or not even some big ones, she went on reaching the highest stages at nearly every WTA event she went for.

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.

A Rivalry Renewed: Virginia Tech vs. West Virginia
Simms will still likely be suspended for the season opener against Virginia Tech , as his Morgantown DUI is still not dismissed. Defensively, the Mountaineers return a few key players like senior linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton and senior safety Kyzir White.

Vandeweghe capitalised on a poor service game from Pliskova with a fizzing forehand return to break for 2-1, but her early calm ended abruptly in game eight. She went 30-40 down, saved the break point and then went to match point with a forehand victor. In the victory, Vandeweghe won 69 percent of her first serve points and 66 percent of her second serve points.

Plsikova will take on another American, Coco Vandeweghe, a 6-4, 7-6 victor Monday over Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic. We have to admire Serena, Venus, Lindsay [Davenport] and Jennifer [Capriati]. "I couldn't wish for anything better".

"When I won this event as a junior at 16, I always dreamed about being here on the real stage, moving through the draw", Vandeweghe said. "Let's make it four for four".

The Meteorological Department said that the city recorded 298 mm of rainfall, the highest in a day since 1997. Four people were killed in Thane, another four died in Palghar in the backdrop of incessant rains.

Pliskova had been the runner-up in 2016 and her failure to defend those points means that Wimbledon champion Muguruza will take the top ranking for the first time despite the Spaniard losing in the last 16 in NY. The mini break in the first point of the tiebreak was enough to see her take the first set, and if Pliskova was to keep her No. 1 ranking, she had to come from a set down. Venus Williams will move into second place if she wins the title.
