US Open -- highlights of a stunning day 8

US Open -- highlights of a stunning day 8

Defeats by seeded players, including world number one Simon Halep in Italy, have ended her hopes of returning to the top this year and it could still yet be a long way back for Sharapova.

Spain's Suarez Navarro sent Maria Sharapova crashing out of the ongoing US Open after a 6-3, 6-4 straight sets victory on Tuesday.

Since returning from her drugs ban past year, Sharapova has made just one quarter-final in five grand slams.

Sharapova collected the trophy in NY at age 19 in 2006 and owns a total of five Grand Slam titles, but the Russian was far shakier during this match than Suarez Navarro, who never has made it past the quarterfinals at a major.

To make the night even more special for Suarez Navarro, who was playing her first night match inside of Arthur Ashe Stadium, the Spaniard was celebrating her 30th birthday.

Whenever Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova had stepped out under the lights to play at the U.S. Open in her tennis career, a win had become customary.

Suarez Navarro let the 22nd-seeded Sharapova create her own problems.

"But Maria, she's a really good player".

NASCAR Xfinity Series: Brad Keselowski Gets First Darlington Win
WEATHER DELAY: Darlington officials twice had to clear the grandstands because of potential severe weather threatening the area. For Chip Ganassi Racing's Larson, who finished third after leading 284 laps, the finish extended his season of disappointment.

Sevastova was nimble with her returns and was astonishingly good at removing the pace from the ball, giving herself enough time to return some of Stephens' power-packed shots. "Well, I'm happy to beat her". Keys punched her ticket to the quarterfinals on Monday with a dominant 6-1, 6-3 victory over No. 35 seed Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. "She has a great serve and plenty of experience on this court". "I don't get it", said the 19-year-old who lost in three sets.

With the US Open's heat advisory put back into effect, the pair traded punishing groundstrokes under the blazing sun with Keys dominating the 76-minute match. She also surprised Stevens with more drop shots when compared to their previous matchups.

But when the NY crowd wished her a happy birthday following her victory over Sharapova on Monday, Suarez Navarro said she hoped to show more of her "character" in the quarter-finals. "Those are all the things that I think we all know going into a match-up against someone like Carla".

Next up for Osaka is a clash against Ukraine's 36th-ranked - and fellow Grand Slam quarter-final debutant - Lesia Tsurenko.

"Against Serena or Karolina, it's going to be a tough match - they play aggressive, they serve big", Sevastova said. Suarez Navarro was clean off the ground and committed just 20 unforced errors throughout the match.

"If you don't have belief, it's your choice to not continue that", she said. I've never felt so bad on court.

Keys, the runner-up past year, is the highest seed left in the bottom half of the draw at 14 and breezed through to the last eight again with a 6-1 6-3 victory over Dominika Cibulkova.

Tsurenko also made sure of a maiden quarter-final at the Slams by seeing off Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova. She got through her opening two matches against French veteran Pauline Parmentier and her compatriot Bernarda Pera easily.
