Karolina Pliskova vs. Coco Vandeweghe 2017 US Open Quarterfinal Pick, Odds, Prediction

Karolina Pliskova vs. Coco Vandeweghe 2017 US Open Quarterfinal Pick, Odds, Prediction

This will mark the fifth meeting between Pliskova and Vandeweghe, with each taking two wins to date.

Pliskova crushed American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 6-0 in 46 minutes to become the fifth woman to advance. This last has defeated the Czech Lucie Safarova 6-4, 7-6 (2).

Keys next will face the surprise of the tournament, 32-year-old Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over 20-year-old Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation. Kanepi is only the second player after being qualified of the modern era to be part of the last eight players competing in the worldwide of the United States, after the American Barbara Gerken in 1981. Svitolina meets No. 15 seed Madison Keys in the nightcap. Definitely she can play better than she was playing today.

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

Georgia QB Jacob Eason leaves game with apparent knee injury
Howard led the defense with 10 tackles, and outside linebacker Devon Stringer had four tackles and the game's only sack. They like to run the ball and use the clock, shortening the game instead of speeding it up with more plays.

The world number one had to save match point before beating China's Shaui Zhang in the third round but she was hardly forced to break sweat against the American world number 91, running out a 6-1 6-0 victor at Flushing Meadows.

"I can play much better than I was playing today". Vandweghe has made it this far after seeing off some tough opponents, but Pliskova, with her crisp groundstrokes, imposing frame and booming serves, represents a major step-up in class. As things stand now, the Spanish will boast both No. 1 players in singles on Monday as Rafael Nadal is top of the men's rankings (though there is a chance he can lose that spot before the US Open ends).

This is easily the best American women's performance at this event since 2002, when five of the top eight were USA players.

"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 afterwards. There's going to be a lot of pressure on Vandeweghe to play another clean match and any slip in her game will result in a loss.

Nigeria vs Cameroon: how and where to watch
Latest addition to the Super Eagles Ola Aina has spoken about representing Nigeria after spells with the English age grade teams. A win here will take Nigeria to nine points, needing just one more victory to seal qualification to Russian Federation 2018.

Nadal is trying for his first U.S. Open quarterfinal appearance since winning the Grand Slam tournament in 2013. She will next face world number one Karolina Pliskova in an intriguing quarterfinal clash.

Nadal also hit form at the US Open to stroll into the quarters for the first time in four years.

Nadal turned in his most powerful performance yet at this year's NY tournament to beat Dolgopolov on Monday (NZT Tuesday), and is now just one win away from a potential semifinal showdown with longtime rival Roger Federer.

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.

Jermaine Kearse dealt to Jets
Richardson was the fourth overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft and made an immediate impact with the Jets. The Seahawks were tied for third in the National Football League in sacks last season with 42.
