Cibulkova avenges Kerber 'killing' at US Open

Angelique Kerber and Petra Kvitova were both knocked out of the US Open on Saturday, leaving defending champion Sloane Stephens as the sole remaining top-six seed in the women's draw.

Cibulkova, who arrived on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court brimming with confidence after toppling Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber in the previous round, countered with a similarly aggressive game to little avail.

"I had my chances, but I couldn't take them, especially in the third set", Kerber told reporters. Also, I was not able actually to play my best tennis in the important moments.

"This time I did a few different things and it worked". "You have sometimes days where you are trying everything, but it's not really working as you wish".

Next up for Keys, who was routed by Sloane Stephens in last year's final, is the victor of the evening clash between five-times Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova and Spanish 30th seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Cibulkova, the 29th seed, moves on to face 2017 finalist Madison Keys, who shook off a slow start to beat Serbian Aleksandra Krunic 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

Sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia of France also departed, beaten 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 by Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro, and Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova sprang a surprise, too, with a 7-6, 2-6, 7-6 victory over 13th-seeded Belgian Kiki Bertens.

Bertens has had an excellent season and defeated Simona Halep to win the title in Cincinnati two weeks ago.

Madison Keys maintained her dominance over Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova with a 6-1 6-3 victory on Monday to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals.

"I'm not looking around who was winning or who was losing", she said. "That was, I think, the key today".

Vondrousova next faces Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko, who followed up her victory over Wozniacki by beating Katerina Siniakova 6-4 6-0. Keber's defeat means the NY grand slam will go into its second week without a German player in the women's draw. However, she saw two match points come and go as Larsson upped her game to embark on an inspired comeback effort.
